I anticipated the dawn and cried out
|I anticipated the dawn and cried out;
I hoped in Your words, I hoped in Your words.
My eyes anticipated the night watches,
That I might muse, muse upon Your word.
|Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; O Jehovah,
Hear my voice according to Your ordinances enliven me.
|How sweet are Your words to my taste!
Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path,
A light to my path.
|You are my hiding place and shield,
My hiding place and shield;
In Your word do I hope.
|Incline my heart to Your testimonies
And not to unjust gain.
Turn my eyes from beholding vanity,
Enliven me in Your ways.
