I Have Followed Truth and Justice

  1. I have followed truth and justice;
    leave me not in deep distress;
    be my help and my protection,
    let the proud no more oppress.
    For your word and your salvation,
    LORD, my eyes with longing fail;
    teach your statutes to your servant,
    let your mercy now prevail.
  2. I am yours, O give me wisdom,
    make me know your truth, I pray;
    sinners have despised your statutes;
    now, O LORD, your pow’r display.
    LORD, I love your good commandments
    and esteem them more than gold;
    all your precepts are most righteous;
    hating sin, to these I hold.
