I am insignificant and despised, but I don’t forget your commandments.
Your justice is eternal, and your instructions are perfectly true.
As pressure and stress bear down on me, I find joy in your commands.
Your laws are always right; help me to understand them so I may live.
I pray with all my heart; answer me, LORD ! I will obey your decrees.
I cry out to you; rescue me, that I may obey your laws.
I rise early, before the sun is up; I cry out for help and put my hope in your words.
I stay awake through the night, thinking about your promise.
In your faithful love, O LORD , hear my cry; let me be revived by following your regulations.
Lawless people are coming to attack me; they live far from your instructions.
But you are near, O LORD , and all your commands are true.
