BibleGateway: Psalm 119:153-160

ESV Text: Psalm 119:153-160

KJV Text:

The section starts at about 14:10 and ends at about 15:4

     153 RESH. Consider mine affliction, and deliver me: for I do not forget thy law. 154 Plead my cause, and deliver me: quicken me according to thy word.

     155 Salvation is far from the wicked: for they seek not thy statutes.

     156 Great are thy tender mercies, O LORD: quicken me according to thy judgments.

     157 Many are my persecutors and mine enemies; yet do I not decline from thy testimonies.

     158 I beheld the transgressors, and was grieved; because they kept not thy word.

     159 Consider how I love thy precepts: quicken me, O LORD, according to thy lovingkindness.

     160 Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever.(KJV)

Hymn: TLH 38:
The Lord, my God, Be Praised


— Organ Audio

1. The Lord, my God, be praised, 
My Light, my Life from heaven; 
My Maker, who to me 
Hath soul and body given; 
My Father, who doth shield 
And keep me day by day, 
Doth make each moment yield 
New blessings on my way. 

2. The Lord, my God, be praised, 
My Trust, my Life from heaven, 
The Father’s own dear Son, 
Whose life for me was given; 
Who for my sin atoned 
With His most precious blood, 
Who giveth me by faith 
The highest heavenly good. 

3. The Lord, my God, be praised, 
My Hope, my Life from heaven, 
The Spirit, whom the Son 
In love to me hath given. 
‘Tis He revives my heart, 
‘Tis He that gives me power, 
Help, comfort, and support 
In sorrow’s gloomy hour. 

4. The Lord, my God, be praised, 
My God, who ever liveth, 
To whom the heavenly host 
All praise and honor giveth. 
The Lord, my God, be praised, 
In whose great name I boast, 
God Father, God the Son, 
And God the Holy Ghost. 

5. To Him with joyful song 
Our praises we are bringing 
And with the angel throng 
Thrice “Holy” we are singing. 
With one united voice 
The Church doth Him adore, 
The Lord, my God, be praised 
Now and forevermore.
