Blessed are the undefiled in the way, Who walk in the law of the Lord!
Blessed are those who keep His testimonies,
Who seek Him with the whole heart!
They also do no iniquity;
They walk in His ways.
You have commanded us
To keep Your precepts diligently.
Oh, that our ways were directed
To keep Your statutes!
Then we would not be ashamed,
When we look into all Your commandments.
We will praise You with uprightness of heart,
When we learn Your righteous judgments.
We will keep Your statutes;
Oh, do not forsake us utterly!
O God, indeed, You have not forsaken us. We know that You set Your love upon us from before there was time…from before there was eternity….that Your Son has been the Lamb slain forever and ever. Given unto us, O God, that we might die unto sin and live unto You. We pray this day, O God, by Your word, bring that closer to us, shape us more in His image. In new hearts, O God, do that great work that Your apostle tells us that he is confident of…that work begun that will be completed until the day of Jesus Christ.
And Father, we pray, may the words of my mouth, and the meditations of all of our hearts be in all ways acceptable To You, O God…our Fortress, our Rock, our Strength and our Redeemer.
