1650 Scottish Psalter
Hugh Wilson, 1766-1824
25 My soul to dust cleaves: quicken me, according to thy word. 26 My ways I showed, and me thou heard'st: teach me thy statutes, Lord. 27 The way of thy commandements make me aright to know; So all thy works that wondrous are I shall to others show. 28 My soul doth melt, and drop away, for heaviness and grief: To me, according to thy word, give strength, and send relief. 29 From me the wicked way of lies let far removèd be; And graciously thy holy law do thou grant unto me. 30 I chosen have the perfect way of truth and verity: Thy judgments that most righteous are before me laid have I. 31 I to thy testimonies cleave; shame do not on me cast. 32 I'll run thy precepts' way, when thou my heart enlargèd hast.
