Heth (Psalm 119:57-64)
You are my portion, O Lord;
I have promised to obey your words.
I have sought your face with all my heart;
be gracious to me according to your promise.
I have considered my ways
and have turned my steps to your statutes.
I will hasten and not delay
to obey your commands.
Though the wicked bind me with ropes,
I will not forget your law.
At midnight I rise to give you thanks
for your righteous laws.
I am a friend to all who fear you,
to all who follow your precepts.
The earth is filled with your love, O Lord;
teach me your decrees.
You are sufficient, my Lord….
I have promised to follow you – help me to keep my promise….
I seek you with all my heart – help me to seek you with all my heart….
Thank you that your grace is sufficient….
I have turned to your ways.
Help me to hasten my steps.
Though the enemy will try and bind me.
Your law is my freedom!
I will give you thanks at every hour,
For your righteousness….
Love overcomes all – and you are love!
Teach me to love as you do….
