You are my portion,5 O LORD; I have promised to obey your words.658
I have sought7 your face with all my heart; be gracious to me8 according to your promise.959
I have considered my ways10 and have turned my steps to your statutes.
I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.1161
Though the wicked bind me with ropes, I will not forget12 your law.
At midnight13 I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws.1463
I am a friend to all who fear you,15 to all who follow your precepts.1664
The earth is filled with your love,17 O LORD; teach me your decrees.18
