1 O Lord, Thy perfect righteousness
Is in thy judgments shown';
In Thy unchanging faithfulness
thy truth thou hast made known.
2 Because Thy foes forget Thy law
My soul is greatly stirred;
Thy servant loves the purity
Of Thy most holy word.
3 Tho' I am humble and despised,
I strive Thy will to do;
Eternal is Thy righteousness,
And all Thy law is true.
4 Delight amid distress and pain
do Thy commandments give;
Thy word is righteous evermore,
Teach me that I may live.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
