Mission of St. Clare logo Psalm 119:49-72 Memor esto verbi tui

O think upon thy servant, as concerning thy word, wherein thou hast caused me to put my trust.

The same is my comfort in my trouble;
for thy word hath quickened me.

The proud have had me exceedingly in derision;
yet have I not shrinked from thy law.

For I remembered thine everlasting judgements, O Lord, and received comfort.

I am horribly afraid for the ungodly that forsake thy law. Thy statutes have been my songs, in the house of my pilgrimage. I have thought upon thy Name, O Lord, in the night-season, and have kept thy law.

This I had, because I kept thy commandments.

Portio mea, Domine

Thou art my portion, O Lord;
I have promised to keep thy law.

I made my humble petition in thy presence with my whole heart;
O be merciful unto me, according to thy word. I called mine own ways to remembrance, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.

I made haste, and prolonged not the time, to keep thy commandments.

The congregations of the ungodly have robbed me;
but I have not forgotten thy law.

At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee, because of thy righteous judgements. I am a companion of all them that fear thee, and keep thy commandments.

The earth, O Lord, is full of thy mercy;
O teach me thy statutes.

Bonitatem fecisti

O Lord, thou hast dealt graciously with thy servant, according unto thy word.

O learn me true understanding and knowledge;
for I have believed thy commandments.

Before I was troubled, I went wrong;
but now have I kept thy word. Thou art good and gracious;
O teach me thy statutes.

The proud have imagined a lie against me;
but I will keep thy commandments with my whole heart.

Their heart is as fat as brawn;
but my delight hath been in thy law.

It is good for me that I have been in trouble, that I may learn thy statutes.

The law of thy mouth is dearer unto me than thousands of gold and silver.
