Remember the Word unto Thy servant, upon which Thou hast caused me to hope. This is my comfort in my affliction: for Thy Word hath quickened me.@Psalm 119:49-50

Lord, Thy word to me remember,
Thou hast made me hope in Thee;
This my comfort in affliction,
That Thy Word has quickened me.

Mocked by those who are unrighteous,
Still to Thy commands I cleave;
Thinking on Thy former judgments,
Help and comfort I receive.

Wicked men, Thy law forsaking,
Stirred my indignation strong;
For in all my pilgrim journey
Thy commandments are my song.

Thou hast been my meditation
And Thy law has been my guide;
I have kept Thy righteous precepts,
And have found them true and tried.
