Richard Farrant, c. 1525-1580 Adapted by John Hilton, d. 1608
Tau 169 O let my earnest prayer and cry come near before thee, Lord: Give understanding unto me, according to thy word. 170 Let my request before thee come: after thy word me free. 171 My lips shall utter praise, when thou hast taught thy laws to me. 172 My tongue of thy most blessèd word shall speak, and it confess; Because all thy commandements are perfect righteousness. 173 Let thy strong hand make help to me: thy precepts are my choice. 174 I longed for thy salvation, Lord, and in thy law rejoice. 175 O let my soul live, and it shall give praises unto thee; And let thy judgments gräcious be helpful unto me. 176 I, like a lost sheep, went astray; thy servant seek, and find: For thy commands I suffered not to slip out of my mind.
