Psalm 119Zain, The 7th Part.

8,6,8,6

49Remember, Lord, thy gracious word

thou to thy servant spake,

Which, for a ground of my sure hope,

thou causedst me to take.

50This word of thine my comfort is

in mine affliction:

For in my straits I am reviv’d

by this thy word alone.

51The men whose hearts with pride are stuff’d

did greatly me deride;

Yet from thy straight commandements

I have not turn’d aside.

52Thy judgments righteous, O Lord,

which thou of old forth gave,

I did remember, and myself

by them comforted have.

53Horror took hold on me, because

ill men thy law forsake.

54I in my house of pilgrimage

thy laws my songs do make.

55Thy name by night, Lord, I did mind,

and I have kept thy law.

56And this I had, because thy word

I kept, and stood in awe.
