Thy word is to my feet a lamp,
and to my path a light.
I sworn have, and I will perform,
to keep thy judgments right.

I am with sore affliction
ev’n overwhelm’d, O Lord:
In mercy raise and quicken me,
according to thy word.

The free-will-off ‘rings of my mouth
accept, I thee beseech:
And unto me thy servant, Lord,
thy judgments clearly teach.

Though still my soul be in my hand,
thy laws I’ll not forget.
>I err’d not from them, though for me
the wicked snares did set.

I of thy testimonies have
above all things made choice,
To be my heritage for aye;
for they my heart rejoice.

I carefully inclined have
my heart still to attend;
That I thy statutes may perform
alway unto the end.

Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases, 1800
