Psalter number 329. The Divine Goodness - Psalm 119


1. Thou, Lord, hast dealt well with Thy servant,

Thy promise is faithful and just;

Instruct me in judgment and knowledge,

For in Thy commandments I trust.


2. Before my affliction I wandered,

But now Thy good word I obey;

O Thou, Who art holy and gracious,

Now teach me Thy statutes, I pray.


3. The proud have assailed me with slander;

The precepts shall still be my guide;

Thy law is my joy and my treasure,

Though sinners may boast in their pride.


4. Affliction has been for my profit,

That I to Thy statutes might hold;

Thy law to my soul is more precious

Than thousands of silver and gold.
