Righteous art Thou, O Lord, and upright are Thy judgments.@Psalm 119:137

From The Psalter (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: United Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1912), number 338.

Church Joseph P. Holbrook, in Songs for the Sanctuary, edited by Charles S. Robinson (New York: A. S. Barnes, 1868) (🔊 pdf nwc).

O Lord, Thy perfect righteousness
Is in Thy judgments shown;
In Thy unchanging faithfulness
Thy truth Thou hast made known.

Because Thy foes forget Thy law
My soul is greatly stirred;
Thy servant loves the purity
Of Thy most holy Word.

Though I am humble and despised,
I strive Thy will to do;
Eternal is Thy righteousness,
And all Thy law is true.

Delight amid distress and pain
Do Thy commandments give;
Thy Word is righteous evermore,
Teach me that I may live.
