Thy promise which thou madest to me

Thy promise which thou mad'st to me,
remember, Lord, I pray;
For therein have I put my trust
and confidence alway.

It is my comfort and my joy,
when troubles me assail:
For were my life not by thy word,
it suddenly would fail.

The proud, and such as God contemn,
still make of me a scorn;
Yet will I not thy law forsake,
as if I were forlorn;

But call to mind, Lord, thy great works
showed to our fathers old,
Whereby I feel my joy surmount
my grief an hundred fold.

Horror hath taken hold on me,
because the wicked do
Forsake thy righteous law, and will
have no regard thereto.

But as for me, I framed my songs
thy statutes to exalt,
When I among the strangers dwelt,
and grief did me assault.

I thought upon thy Name, O Lord,
by night when others sleep;
Thy law also I kept always,
and ever will it keep.

This grace I did obtain, because
thy covenants most dear
I did embrace, and also keep
with reverence and fear.
