My soul cleaveth unto the dust: quicken Thou me according to Thy Word. Psalm 119:25
My grieving soul revive, O Lord,
According to Thy Word;
To Thee my ways I have declared
And Thou my prayer hast heard.
Teach me to know Thy holy way
And think upon Thy deeds;
In grief I ask for promised grace
According to my need.
Keep me from falsehood, let Thy law
With me in grace abide;
The way of faithfulness I choose,
Thy precepts are my guide.
I cleave unto Thy truth, O Lord,
From shame deliver me;
In glad obedience I will live
Through strength bestowed by Thee.
