Psalter number 331. Patient Endurance and Submission - Psalm 119

1. My soul for Thy salvation faints,

But still I hope in Thee;

I long to see Thy promised help,

When Thou shalt comfort me.


2. Thy statutes I do not forget,

Though wasting grief I know;

Thy servant's days are few, O Lord;

When wilt Thou judge my foe?


3. The proud, disdainful of Thy law,

Entrap me wrongfully;

O Thou, Whose law is just and true,

Help and deliver me.


4. Almost consumed, yet from Thy law

I have not turned away;

In lovingkindness give me strength,

That I may still obey.
