I cried with my whole heart, Hear me, O Lord: I will keep Thy statutes. I cried unto Thee, Save me, and I shall keep Thy testimonies.@Psalm 119:145-6

Welcome Voice Lewis Hartsough, 1872 (🔊 pdf nwc).

O Lord, my earnest cry
Thy listening ear has heard;
With Thy salvation answer me,
And I will keep Thy Word.
At early dawn I prayed,
Thy promises my trust;
At night I thought upon Thy Word,
Most holy and most just.

O hear me in Thy grace,
In mercy quicken me;
The wicked plan to do me harm,
But they are far from Thee.
Thou, Lord, art near to me,
And true are Thy commands;
Of old Thy testimonies show
Thy truth eternal stands.
