Your testimonies are grand,
Therefore, my soul will keep them;
Shows all of us where You stand,
No fear that You would condemn.
 
The unfolding of Your words,
It imparts understanding;
Making enemies cowards,
Of what You are demanding.
 
They are simple giving light.
I open my mouth and pant;
Since they are shedding insight,
Etched in my mind to enchant.
 
I long for Your commandments,
Because they entice the heart;
Roots deep in my sentiments,
Entrapping not to depart.
 
Turn to me and be gracious,
Look upon me with mercy;
To be strong and courageous,
As to offer clemency.
 
Because those who love Your name,
Have been following Your way;
I continue to proclaim,
And never to go astray.
 
Order my steps in Your Word,
According to Your promise;
Allowing my ears has heard,
Of Your impartial justice.
 
Let no iniquity rule,
Get dominion over me;
I do not want to be fool,
Open my eyes as to see.
 
Redeem me from oppression,
So that I keep Your precepts;
Never to have obsession,
With any evil concepts.
 
Make Your face shine upon me,
Teaching me of Your statutes;
Understanding of Your decree,
For performing my pursuits.
 
For my eyes shed streams of tears,
Since people keep not Your Law;
It has brought out my worst fears,
You condemn them for their flaw.
