ESV Text: Psalm 119:89-96
Psalm 119:89–96 (Listen)
89 Forever, O LORD, your word
is firmly fixed in the heavens.
90 Your faithfulness endures to all generations;
you have established the earth, and it stands fast.
91 By your appointment they stand this day,
for all things are your servants.
92 If your law had not been my delight,
I would have perished in my affliction.
93 I will never forget your precepts,
for by them you have given me life.
94 I am yours; save me,
for I have sought your precepts.
95 The wicked lie in wait to destroy me,
but I consider your testimonies.
96 I have seen a limit to all perfection,
but your commandment is exceedingly broad.
89 LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven. 90 Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth. 91 They continue this day according to thine ordinances: for all are thy servants.
92 Unless thy law had been my delights, I should then have perished in mine affliction.
93 I will never forget thy precepts: for with them thou hast quickened me.
94 I am thine, save me; for I have sought thy precepts.
95 The wicked have waited for me to destroy me: but I will consider thy testimonies.
96 I have seen an end of all perfection: but thy commandment is exceeding broad.(KJV)
Hymn: WS 796:
The Day You Gave Us, Lord, Is Ended
The darkness falls at Your request
To You our morning hymns ascended;
Your praise shall sanctify our rest.
2. We thank You that Your Church, unsleeping
While earth rolls onward into light,
Through all the world her watch is keeping
And never rests day or night.
3. As over continent and island
Each dawn leads to another day,
The voice of prayer is never silent,
Nor do the praises die away.
4. So be it, Lord; Your throne shall never,
Like earth’s proud kingdoms, pass away.
Your kingdom stands and grows forever
Until there dawns Your glorious day.
