Hymn/Song Information

Princes have persecuted me without a




SCHIN.
Princes have persecuted me
without a cause; but saw
It was in vain, for of thy word
my heart did stand in awe.


And surely of thy word I was
more joyful and more glad,
Than he that of rich spoils and prey
great store and plenty had.


But as for lies and falsities,
them I hate and detest;
Because thy holy law I do
above all things love best.


Seven times a day I praise thee, Lord,
singing with heart and voice;
Because thy righteous judgments do
greatly my heart rejoice.


Great peace and rest shall all such have
as do thy statutes love;
No danger shall their quiet state
impair or once remove.


My only health and comfort, Lord,
I look for at thy hand;
And therefore have I done those things
which thou didst me command.


Thy laws have been my exercise,
which my soul most desired;
So much to them my love was bent,
that naught else I required.


Thy statutes and commandments I
have kept with heart upright;
For all my doings and my ways
are present in thy sight.
