SUGGESTED TUNES: TERRA BEATA or DIADEMATA
This is the meter of such hymns as "This Is My Father's World" and "Crown Him with Many Crowns."
1. Right-eous are you, O Lord,
And right your judg-ments are;
You right-ly want us to o-bey
You in all faith-ful-ness.
My zeal con-sumes me, for
My foes for-get your words.
Your prom-ise is both tried and true,
And it your ser-vant loves.
2. Though I'm small and put down,
I don't for-get your laws.
Your just-ice is for-ev-er just,
Your law is al-ways true.
Trou-ble and pain I know,
But your law is my joy.
Your tes-ti-mon-ies are e'er just;
Give in-sight, let me live.
