~ Thy Law ~

I have longed for thy salvation,

O Lord; and thy law is my delight.

Open thou mine eyes, that I may

behold wondrous things out of thy law.

~ * ~

The proud have digged pits for me,

which are not after thy law.

Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law;

yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

~ * ~

I delight to do thy will, O my God:

yea, thy law is within my heart.

Let thy tender mercies come unto me,

that I may live: for thy law is my delight.

~ * ~

I have remembered thy name, O Lord,

in the night, and have kept thy law.

Unless thy law had been my delights,

I should then have perished in mine affliction.

~ * ~

O how love I thy law!

It is my meditation all the day.

My soul is continually in my hand:

yet do I not forget thy law.

~ * ~

Thy righteousness is an everlasting

righteousness, and thy law is the truth.

So shall I keep thy law

continually for ever and ever.

~ Joyce C. Lock ~


        Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest,
        O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law;
        That thou mayest give him rest from the days of
        adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
        For the Lord will not cast off his people,
        neither will he forsake his inheritance.

        But judgment shall return unto righteousness:
        and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
        Psalm 94:12-15
