You, LORD, Are the Portion

  1. You, LORD, are the portion that I long for,
    I have pledged obedience to your word.
    I with all my heart have sought your favor;
    grant me grace, as you have promised, LORD.
  2. When I search my ways and all my conduct,
    then I turn my footsteps to your way.
    I make haste to follow your commandments;
    I will hurry and will not delay.
  3. Though the wicked tie me up with bindings,
    I do not forget your holy law.
    E’en at midnight I will rise to praise you,
    for your rules are righteous, O my God.
  4. Those who fear you are my best companions,
    all who keep your precepts and your ways.
    LORD, the earth is full of your great mercy,
    teach me all your righteous laws, I pray.
