1 Thy servant blest by Thee, shall live
And keep Thy word with awe;
Lord, open Thou my eyes to see
The wonders of Thy law.
2 A pilgrim in the earth am I,
Thy will to me reveal;
To know Thy truth my spirit yearns,
Consumed with ardent zeal.
3 Thou dost rebuke the proud, o lord,
Who hate Thy holy Name;
But since I keep Thy righteous law,
Deliver me from shame.
4 I on Thy statutes meditate,
Though evil men deride;
Thy faithful word is my delight,
My counselor and guide.
The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
