Thy pro­mised mer­cies send to me,
Thy great sal­va­tion, Lord;
So shall I an­swer those who scoff:
My trust is Thy Word.

My hope is in Thy judg­ment, Lord;
Take not Thy truth from me;
And in Thy law for­ev­er­more
My dai­ly walk shall be.

And I will walk at li­ber­ty
Because Thy truth I seek;
Thy truth be­fore the kings of earth
With bold­ness I will speak.

The Lord’s com­mands, which I have loved,
Shall still new joy im­part;
With re­ver­ence I will hear Thy laws
And keep them in my heart.
