But evermore I have respect to his law

But evermore I have respect
to his law and decree;
His statutes and commandments I
cast not away from me:

But pure and clean, and uncorrupt,
appeared before his face,
nd did refrain from wickedness
and sin in ev'ry case.

The Lord will therefore me reward,
as I have done aright;
As to the cleanness of my hands
appearing in his sight.

For, Lord, with him that holy is
wilt thou be holy too;
And with the good and virtuous man
thou wilt uprightly do:

And for the loving and elect
thy favor wilt reserve;
And thou wilt use the wicked men
as wicked men deserve.

For thou dost save the simple folk,
in trouble when they lie;
And dost bring down the countenance
of them that look full high.

The Lord will light my candle so,
that it shall shine full bright;
The Lord my God will make also
my darkness to be light.

For by thy help an host of men
discomfit. Lord, I shall;
By thee I scale and overleap
the strength of any wall.

Unspotted are the ways of God,
his word is purely tried;
He is a sure defense to such
as in his faith abide.

For who is God, except the Lord !
for other there is none:
Or else who is omnipotent,
saving our God alone.
