Profession: of sincerity, repentance, and obedience.
Ver. 57 60.
Thou art my portion, O my God;
Soon as I know thy way,
My heart makes haste t’ obey thy word,
And suffers no delay.
Ver. 30 14.
I choose the path of heavenly truth,
And glory in my choice:
Not all the riches of the earth
Could make me so rejoice.
The testimonies of thy grace
I set before my eyes;
Thence I derive my daily strength,
And there my comfort lies.
If once I wander from thy path,
I think upon my ways,
Then turn my feet to thy commands,
And trust thy pardoning grace.
Ver. 94 114.
Now I am thine, for ever thine,
O save thy servant, Lord;
Thou art my shield, my hiding-place,
My hope is in thy word.
Thou hast inclin’d this heart of mine,
Thy statutes to fulfil;
And thus till mortal life shall end
Would I perform thy will.
