Let my cry come before thee, O Lord; give me understanding according to thy word! Let my supplication come before thee; deliver me according to thy word. My lips will pour forth praise that thou dost teach me thy statutes. My tongue will sing of thy word, for all thy commandments are right. Let thy hand be ready to help me, for I have chosen thy precepts. I long for thy salvation, O Lord, and thy law is my delight. Let me live, that I may praise thee, and let thy ordinances help me. I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek thy servant, for I do not forget thy commandments.
