Thy hands have made and fashioned me

Thy hands have made and fashioned me

Tune: CANAAN (Perkins)
Published in 7 hymnals

Representative Text


73 Thy hands have made and fashioned me;
teach me thy laws, O Lord.
74 They who thee fear see me with joy,
for I trust in thy word.
75 That righteous are thy judgments, Lord,
I know, and do confess;
and that thou hast afflicted me
in truth and faithfulness.

76 O let thy kindness merciful,
I pray thee, comfort me,
as to thy servant promised was
in faithfulness by thee.
77 And let thy tender mercies come
to me, that I may live;
because thy holy laws to me
sweet delectation give.

78 O let the proud ashamed be,
for they without a cause
with me have falsely dealt; but I
will muse upon thy laws.
79 Let such as fear thee, and have known
thy statutes, turn to me.
80 In thy laws let my heart be sound,
that shamed I may not be.
