P141. Psalm 119, Part 15: I hate the thoughts of vanity

113 I hate the thoughts of vanity,
but love thy law do I.
114 My shield and hiding-place thou art:
I on thy word rely.

115 All ye that evil-doers are
from me depart away;
For the commandments of my God
I purpose to obey.

116 According to thy faithful word
uphold and stablish me,
That I may live, and of my hope
ashamed never be.

117 Hold thou me up, so shall I be
in peace and safety still;
And to thy statutes have respect
continually I will.

118 Thou tread’st down all that love to stray;
false their deceit doth prove.
119 Lewd men, like dross, away thou putt’st;
therefore thy law I love.

120 For fear of thee my very flesh
doth tremble, all dismay’d;
And of thy righteous judgments, Lord,
my soul is much afraid.
