O God who art my part and lot my comfort




CHETH.
O God, who art my part and lot,
my comfort and my stay,
I have decreed and promisèd
thy laws to keep alway.


With my whole heart I humbly sued
in presence of thy face;
As thou therefore hast promisèd,
Lord, grant to me thy grace.


My life I have examinèd,
and tried my secret heart,
Which to thy statutes caused me
my feet straight to convert.


I did not stay nor linger long,
as they that slothful are,
But hastily thy laws to keep
I did myself prepare;


The cruel bands of wicked men
have made of me their prey;
Yet would I not thy law forget,
nor from thee go astray.


Thy righteous laws and judgments are
so very great and high,
That e'en at midnight I will rise
Thy Name to magnify.


I am companion of all them
who fear thee in their heart;
O therefore grant 1 never may
from thy commandments start.


Thy mercies, Lord, most plenteously
the earth throughout do fill:
O teach me how I may obey
thy statutes and thy will.
