Representative Text

1 Though mighty foes assail me, Lord,
I fear not them but Thee;
As boundless wealth and priceless spoil,
Thy word rejoices me.

2 Deceit and falsehood I abhor,
But in thy law delight;
Throughout the day I praise Thy Name,
For all Thy ways are right.

3 Great peace has he who loves Thy law,
Unmoved, he safely stands;
For Thy salvation I have hoped
And followed Thy commands.

4 Thy testimonies I have kept,
They are my chief delight;
Observant of Thy law and truth,
I walk before Thy sight.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
