Thy testimonies that you lavished on your people, Thou hast made us green by them. Commanded are your people to keep them; righteous and full of truth, very faithful, and forever preserved.
Thy testimonies are the fount of grace, and Wonderful in displaying your glory. Therefore do I remember your works of old, and My soul longs to draw near again. Keep them ever new.
I am the Rose of Sharon, you said. Thy servant am I, I said. Give me more Rose-likeness, Understanding the thorns around me, That I may grow in your garden, Know your tender hand, And rejoice in thy testimonies.
Thou puttest away my sin, all the wicked of the earth marvel at grace, like dross, my vanity is skimmed off. therefore I love all your ways, thy testimonies steel me for the fire.
