Hymn/Song Information

Thy hands have made and fashioned me

Thy hands have made and fashioned me,
thy creature, Lord, am I;
Make me to understand thy law,
and keep it faithfully.

So they that fear thee shall rejoice
whenever they may see,
Because I've learned by thy word
to put my trust in thee.

I know, O Lord, thy judgments all
most just and righteous be,
And that in very faithfulness
thou hast afflicted me.

Now of thy goodness, I thee pray,
some comfort to me send,
And as thou hast me hitherto,
O Lord, still me defend.

Thy tender mercies pour on me,
then shall I surely live;
For joy and consolation both
thy law to me doth give.

Confound the proud who do me seek
perversely to destroy;
But as for me, thy laws to know,
I will myself employ.

Whoso with rev'rence do thee fear,
to me let them retire;
And such as know thy covenants,
and them alone desire.

My heart without all wavering
let on thy laws be bent,
That no confusion come to me,
nor any discontent.
