Lowell Mason (1792–1872)


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.
