Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of Thy Word.@Psalm 119:161

Charles H. Gabriel (1856-1932)

From The Psalter (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: United Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1912), number 341.

Erskine Charles H. Gabriel, 1912 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Though mighty foes assail me, Lord,
I fear not them, but Thee;
As boundless wealth and priceless spoil,
Thy Word rejoices me.
Deceit and falsehood I abhor,
But in Thy law delight;
Throughout the day I praise Thy name,
For all Thy ways are right.

Great peace has he who loves Thy law,
Unmoved, he safely stands;
For Thy salvation I have hoped
And followed Thy commands.
Thy testimonies I have kept,
They are my chief delight;
Observant of Thy law and truth,
I walk before Thy sight.
