Psalm 119 part 12

Breathing after comfort and deliverance.

Ver. 153

My God, consider my distress,
Let mercy plead my cause;
Though I have sinned against thy grace,
I can’t forget thy laws.

Ver. 39,116

Forbid, forbid the sharp reproach
Which I so justly fear;
Uphold my life, uphold my hopes,
Not let my shame appear.

Ver. 122,135

Be thou a surety, Lord, for me,
Nor let the proud oppress;
But make thy waiting servant see
The shining of thy face.

Ver. 82

My eyes with expectation fail,
My heart within me cries,
“When will the Lord his truth fulfil,
And make my comforts rise?”

Ver. 132

Look down upon my sorrows, Lord,
And show thy grace the same
As thou art ever wont t’ afford
To those that love thy name.
