Hymn/Song Information

According to thy promise Lord so hast

According to thy promise, Lord,
so hast thou with me dealt;
For of thy grace in sundry sorts
have I thy servant felt.

Teach me to judge always aright,
and give me knowledge sure;
For steadfastly I do believe
thy precepts are most pure.

Before that I afflicted was,
I erred and went astray;
But now I keep thy holy word,
nd make it all my stay.

Thou art both good and gracious, Lord,
and in thy gifts most free:
Thy ordinances how to keep
therefore, O Lord, teach me.

The proud and the ungodly have
against me forged a lie;
Yet thy commandments still observe
with all my heart will I.

Their hearts are e'en like unto brawn,
which is exceeding fat;
But in thy law do I delight,
and nothing seek but that.

O happy time, may I well say,
when thou didst me correct!
That I thereby might learn thy laws,
and never them reject.

So that thy word and law to me
is dearer manifold,
Than gold and silver in great sums,
or ought that can be told.
