VAU.

LET thy loving mercy come unto me, O Lord, even thy salvation, according unto thy word.

So shall I make answer unto those who reproach me; for my trust is in thy word.

O take not the word of thy truth utterly out of my mouth; for my hope is in thy judgements.

So shall I alway keep thy law; yea for ever and

ever.

And I will walk at liberty; for I seek thy commandments.

I will speak of thy testimonies also, even before kings, and will not be ashamed.

And my delight shall be in thy commandments, which I have loved.

My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and my study shall be in thy statutes.

Now unto the King eternal, &c.

Be honor and glory, &c.

EVENING PRAYER.

PSALM 119.

ZAIN.

O THINK upon thy word of promise to thy servant, wherein thou hast caused me to put my trust.

The same is my comfort in my trouble; for thy word hath quickened me.

The proud have had me exceedingly in derision; yet have I not shrunk from thy law.

For I remembered thy judgments of old, O Lord, and received comfort.

Horror hath taken hold upon me, because of the wicked who forsake thy law.

Thy statutes have been my songs in the house of my pilgrimage.

I have thought upon thy name, O Lord, in the night season; and have kept thy law.

I esteemed myself rich in that I have kept thy commandments.
