"I cried with my whole heart; hear me, O Lord: I will keep thy statutes.
I cried unto thee; save me, and I shall keep thy testimonies.
I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy word.
Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word.
Hear my voice according unto thy lovingkindness: O Lord, quicken me according to thy judgment.
They draw nigh that follow after mischief: they are far from thy law.
Thou art near, O Lord; and all thy commandments are truth.
Concerning thy testimonies, I have known of old that thou hast founded them for ever."
