In heaven O Lord where thou dost dwell




LAMED.
In heav'n, O Lord, where thou dost dwell,
thy word is stablished sure,
And shall to all eternity
fast settled there endure.


From age to age thy truth abides,
as doth the earth witness;
Whose ground-work thou hast laid so sure
as no tongue can express.


E'en to this day we may well see
how thou dost them preserve,
According to thy ordinance;
for all things do thee serve.


Had it not been that in thy law
my soul had comfort sought;
Long time ere now in my distress
I had been brought to naught.


Therefore will I thy precepts keep
in memory full fast,
Because that thou by them, O Lord
my life restorèd hast.


No man to me can title make,
for I am only thine;
Save me therefore, for to thy laws
my ears and heart incline.


he wicked men that seek my bane,
or me do lie in wait:
But I will meditate upon
thy testimonies great:


For nothing in this world I see
which hath at length no end;
But thy commandments and thy word
beyond all time extend.
