Jackson (C.M.) v4/C
O LORD, THY PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS
O Lord, Thy perfect righteousness
Is in Thy judgments shown;
In Thy unchanging faithfulness
Thy truth Thou hast made known.
Because Thy foes forget Thy law
My soul is greatly stirred;
Thy servant loves the purity
Of Thy most Holy Word.
Though I am humble and despised,
I strive Thy will to do;
Eternal is Thy righteousness,
And all Thy law is true.
Delight amid distress and pain
Do Thy commandments give;
Thy Word is righteous evermore,
Teach me that I may live.
