I call with all my heart; answer me, Lord. I will obey Your statutes.
I call to You; save me, and I will keep Your decrees.
I rise before dawn and cry out for help; I put my hope in Your word.
I am awake through each watch of the night to meditate on Your promise.
In keeping with Your faithful love, hear my voice. Lord, give me life, in keeping with Your justice.
Those who pursue evil plansa come near; they are far from Your instruction.
You are near, Lord, and all Your commands are true.
Long ago I learned from Your decrees that You have established them forever.
