Before I was without discipline, now Afflicted, I find your harness. I went astray before, like a wild colt, But now I am ruled by your rod and staff. Have I learned my latest lesson yet? Kept in your stable, Thy word reigns me in.
Thou hast kept me according to your word. Dealt well, even though I deserve none of it. With thy servant, O Lord, you are precious, According unto the grace lavished on us. Thy word tours all your benefits.
I intreated today at the throne of Grace, Thy favour with mercy for my work. My whole heart desires your presence. Be merciful unto me when I wander astray, According to thy word let blessedness come.
This is, was, painful. My comfort in total is, was, you. My affliction; David said it’s good For me to be buffeted in body, mind, and soul. Thy word hath been a fast medicine, and Quickened me for your name’s sake. I trust you.
