^41Let thy sweet mercies also come
and visit me, O Lord;
Ev'n thy benign salvation,
according to thy word.
^42So shall I have wherewith I may
give him an answer just,
Who spitefully reproacheth me;
for in thy word I trust.
^43The word of truth out of my mouth
take thou not utterly;
For on thy judgments righteous
my hope doth still rely.
^44So shall I keep for evermore
thy law continually.
^45And, sith that I thy precepts seek,
I'll walk at liberty.
^46I'll speak thy word to kings, and I
with shame shall not be mov'd;
^47And will delight myself always
in thy laws, which I lov'd.
^48To thy commandments, which I lov'd,
my hands lift up I will;
And I will also meditate
upon thy statutes still.
