my delights

Psalm 119:129-144

v143

Trouble and anguish have taken hold on me: [yet] thy commandments [are] my delights.

When we're in sad situations, we should cheer ourselves up with the Lord's Word.

From: How Firm a Foundation

By John Rippon, 1787 and Jo­seph Funk, 1832
When through fiery trials thy pathways shall lie,
My grace, all sufficient, shall be thy supply;
The flame shall not hurt thee; I only design
Thy dross to consume, and thy gold to refine.

The soul that on Jesus has leaned for repose,
I will not, I will not desert to its foes;
That soul, though all hell should endeavor to shake,
I’ll never, no never, no never forsake.
