Lords Day 5, 2009


I reioyced, when they sayd to me, We wil go into the house of the Lord. (Psalme 122:1 Geneva Bible)

PETITIONARY HYMNS
POEM XII.
O that my ways were made so direct, &c.
Augustus Toplady (17401778)

O that my ways were made so strait,
   And that the lamp of faith
Would, as a star, direct my feet
   Within the narrow path!

O that thy strength might enter now,
   And in my heart abide,
To make me as a faithful bow
   That never starts aside!

O that I all to Christ were given,
   (From sin and earth set free)
Who kindly laid aside his heaven,
   And gave himself for me!

Not more the panting hart desires
   The cool, refreshing stream
Than my dry, thirsty soul aspires
   At being one with him.

Set up thine image in my heart;
   Thy temple let us be,
Bid every idol now depart
   That fain would rival thee.

Still keep me In the heavenly path
   Bestow the inward light;
And lead me by the hand till faith
   Is ripened into sight.

Psalme 119:3340
(Geneva Bible)
He.

33 Teach mee, O Lord, the way of thy statutes, and I will keepe it vnto the ende.
34 Giue mee vnderstanding, and I will keepe thy Law: yea, I wil keepe it with my whole heart.
35 Direct mee in the path of thy commandements: for therein is my delite.
36 Incline mine heart vnto thy testimonies, and not to couetousnesse.
37 Turne away mine eies from regarding vanitie, and quicken me in thy way.
38 Stablish thy promise to thy seruaunt, because he feareth thee.
39 Take away my rebuke that I feare: for thy iudgements are good.
40 Beholde, I desire thy commandements: quicken me in thy righteousnesse,
