^73Thou mad'st and fashion'dst me: thy laws
to know give wisdom, Lord.
^74So who thee fear shall joy to see
me trusting in thy word.
^75That very right thy judgments are
I know, and do confess;
And that thou hast afflicted me
in truth and faithfulness.
^76O let thy kindness merciful,
I pray thee, comfort me,
As to thy servant faithfully
was promised by thee.
^77And let thy tender mercies come
to me, that I may live;
Because thy holy laws to me
sweet delectation give.
^78Lord, let the proud ashamed be;
for they, without a cause,
With me perversely dealt: but I
will muse upon thy laws.
^79Let such as fear thee, and have known
thy statutes, turn to me.
^80My heart let in thy laws be sound,
that sham'd I never be.
