Your laws are wonderful! That's why I guard them.
Access to your wordsa gives light, giving simple folk understanding.
I open my mouth up wide, panting, because I long for your commandments.
Come back to me and have mercy on me; that's only right for those who love your name.
Keep my steps steady by your word; don't let any sin rule me.
Redeem me from the people who oppress me so I can keep your precepts.
Shine your face on your servant, and teach me your statutes.
Rivers of tears stream from my eyes because your Instruction isn't being kept.
