You are my portion,1 O LORD; I have promised to obey your words.258
I have sought3 your face with all my heart; be gracious to me4 according to your promise.559
I have considered my ways6 and have turned my steps to your statutes.
I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.761
Though the wicked bind me with ropes, I will not forget8 your law.
At midnight9 I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws.1063
I am a friend to all who fear you,11 to all who follow your precepts.1264
The earth is filled with your love,13 O LORD; teach me your decrees.14
