Psalter manuscript

Psalm 119 – DALETH: My soul clings to dust


My soul clings to dust for I am dying,
Revive me according to Your word.
My ways I’ve declared before my Sovereign
Who graciously all my prayers has heard.

So teach and instruct me by Your statutes
That I might be wise and understand;
Beholding with pleasure and thanksgiving
The wonderful works of Your right hand.

My soul melts beneath this heavy burden;
Empow’r me according to Your word.
Remove all deceitfulness and lying
And grant me Your law O gracious Lord.

A path straight and truthful I have chosen,
Your judgments are spread before my feet;
As I seek to keep all Your commandments
Send help from on high lest I retreat.
