PSALM 119:1-8
METER:  LMD (88 88 D)

1.  Hap-py are those who do no wrong,
    Who walk in the law of the Lord.
    Hap-py they who do his com-mands,
    Who o-bey him with all their hearts.
    They nev-er do that which is wrong,
    But ev-er walk in Yah-weh's ways.
    Lord, you have giv-en us your laws
    And told us to hold fast to them.
2.  O may I al-ways faith-ful be
    And al-ways your in-struc-tions keep.
    If I pay heed to all your laws,
    I nev-er will be put to shame.
    As I your right-eous judg-ments learn,
    I will praise you with a pure heart.
    I al-ways will o-bey your laws;
    O Lord, do not a-ban-don me!
