O Lord, thou art most righteous

O Lord, thou art most righteous

Published in 2 hymnals

Representative Text

137 O Lord, thou art most righteous;
thy judgments are upright.
138 Thy testimonies thou command’st
most faithful are and right.

139 My zeal hath ev’n consumed me,
because mine enemies
Thy holy words forgotten have,
and do thy laws despise.

140 Thy word’s most pure, therefore on it
thy servant’s love is set.
141 Small, and despis’d I am, yet I
thy precepts not forget.

142 Thy righteousness is righteousness
which ever doth endure:
Thy holy law, Lord, also is
the very truth most pure.

143 Trouble and anguish have me found,
and taken hold on me:
Yet in my trouble my delight
thy just commandments be.

144 Eternal righteousness is in
thy testimonies all:
Lord, to me understanding give,
and ever live I shall.
