Words: Par­a­phrase of Psalm 119; au­thor un­known.

Music: Car­lisle, , 1791.

Thou art my portion, Lord;
Thy words I ever heed;
With all my heart, Thy grace I seek,
Thy promises I plead.

I thought upon my ways,
Thy testimonies learned;
With earnest haste, and waiting not,
To Thy commands I turned.

While snares beset my path,
Thy law I keep in view;
At midnight I will give Thee praise
For all Thy judgments true.

All those who fear Thy Name
Shall my companions be;
Thy mercy fills the earth, O Lord;
Thy statutes teach Thou me.
