With me, thy servant, thou hast dealt
most graciously, O Lord;
Repeated benefits bestowed,
according to thy word.


Teach me the sacred skill, by which
right judgment is attained,
Who in belief of thy commands
have steadfastly remained.


Before affliction stopped my course,
my footsteps went astray;
But I have since been disciplined
thy precepts to obey.


Thou art, O Lord, supremely good,
and all thou dost is so;
On me, thy statutes to discern,
thy saving skill bestow.


The proud have forged malicious lies,
my spotless fame to stain;
But my fixed heart, without reserve,
thy precepts shall retain.


While pampered they, with prosp'rous ills,
in sensual pleasures live,
My soul can relish no delight
but what thy precepts give.


'Tis good for me that I have felt
affliction's chast'ning rod,
That I might duly learn and keep
the statutes of my God.


The law that from thy mouth proceeds
of more esteem I hold
Than untouched mines, than thousand mines
of silver and of gold.
