You Treated Your Servant with Grace

  1. You treated your servant with grace,
    as pledged in your word I received.
    Teach knowledge and judgment to me,
    because your commands I believed.
    Before my affliction I strayed,
    but now I will hold to your word.
    You are good and you do what is good;
    teach me your commandments, O LORD.
  2. The insolent smear me with lies,
    yet I keep your law with my heart.
    Their hearts are unfeeling like fat;
    I love what your precepts impart.
    It was good that I suffered distress,
    that I might be taught your commands.
    For your law is more precious to me
    than silver and gold in my hands.
