Worthy Word


Tune: Fulda

('We have a gospel to proclaim')

Psalm 119 v.140-144


Your word is very pure, Lord, I

Your servant do love it here nigh

I am small, despised, yet do not

Forget your precepts, they my lot


Your righteousness ins e'erlasting

Your law is the truth through each thing

Trouble and anguish do I know

Yet I hold to your word e'en so


For your commands are my delight

I keep them always in my sight

To do them, and the righteousness

Of your testimonies, they bliss


They last for ever, never fade

Give me understanding, so staid

In your ways I shall be, and live

And thankful praises to you give
