Pursuing the Path

orchidee



Tune: St Hilda

('O happy band of pilgrims')

Psalm 119 v.71-74

********

It is good for me that I

Afflicted [be] by and by

That I might your statutes learn

O Lord, and to you turn

 

Law of your mouth better be

Than heaps of riches, see

Better than thousands of gold

Or silver stores be told

 

You hands, Lord, have fashioned, made

Me, your works here displayed

Give me understanding so

I your commands learn, know

 

They that fear you, Lord, will be

Glad when they do me see

Because I have hoped in your

Word, it abides e'ermore
