ESV Text: Psalm 119:169-176


KJV Text:

The section starts at about 15:42 and ends at about 16:35

     169 TAU. Let my cry come near before thee, O LORD: give me understanding according to thy word. 170 Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me according to thy word.

     171 My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught me thy statutes.

     172 My tongue shall speak of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteousness.

     173 Let thine hand help me; for I have chosen thy precepts. 174 I have longed for thy salvation, O LORD; and thy law is my delight.

     175 Let my soul live, and it shall praise thee; and let thy judgments help me.

     176 I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant; for I do not forget thy commandments.(KJV)


Hymn: TLH 292:
Lord Jesus Christ, With Us Abide

— Organ Audio

1. Lord Jesus Christ, with us abide, 
For round us falls the eventide; 
Nor let Thy Word, that heavenly light, 
For us be ever veiled in night. 

2. In these last days of sore distress 
Grant us, dear Lord, true steadfastness 
That pure we keep, till life is spent, 
Thy holy Word and Sacrament. 

3. Lord Jesus, help, Thy Church uphold, 
For we are sluggish, thoughtless, cold. 
Oh, prosper well Thy Word of grace 
And spread its truth in every place! 

4. Oh, keep us in Thy Word, we pray; 
The guile and rage of Satan stay! 
Oh, may Thy mercy never cease! 
Give concord, patience, courage, peace. 

5. O God, how sin’s dread works abound! 
Throughout the earth no rest is found, 
And falsehood’s spirit wide has spread, 
And error boldly rears its head. 

6. The haughty spirits, Lord, restrain 
Who o’er Thy Church with might would reign 
And always set forth something new, 
Devised to change Thy doctrine true. 

7. And since the cause and glory, Lord, 
Are Thine, not ours, to us afford 
Thy help and strength and constancy. 
With all our heart we trust in Thee. 

8. A trusty weapon is Thy Word, 
Thy Church’s buckler, shield and sword. 
Oh, let us in its power confide 
That we may seek no other guide! 

9. Oh, grant that in Thy holy Word 
We here may live and die, dear Lord; 
And when our journey endeth here, 
Receive us into glory there.
