I esteem all Thy precepts concerning all things to be right; and I hate every false way. Psalm 119:128
Words: Isaac Watts, The Psalms of David 1719.
Holiness and comfort from the Word.
Music: Downs Lowell Mason, 1832 (🔊 pdf nwc).
Lord, I esteem Thy judgments right,
And all Thy statutes just;
Thence I maintain a constant fight
With every flattering lust.
Thy precepts often I survey;
I keep Thy law in sight,
Through all the business of the day,
To form my actions right.
My heart in midnight silence cries,
How sweet Thy comforts be!
My thoughts in holy wonder rise,
And bring their thanks to Thee.
And when my spirit drinks her fill
At some good word of Thine,
Not mighty men that share the spoil
Have joys compared to mine.
