     81 CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word. 82 Mine eyes fail for thy word, saying, When wilt thou comfort me?

     83 For I am become like a bottle in the smoke; yet do I not forget thy statutes.

     84 How many are the days of thy servant? when wilt thou execute judgment on them that persecute me?

     85 The proud have digged pits for me, which are not after thy law. 86 All thy commandments are faithful: they persecute me wrongfully; help thou me. 87 They had almost consumed me upon earth; but I forsook not thy precepts.

     88 Quicken me after thy lovingkindness; so shall I keep the testimony of thy mouth.(KJV)

Hymn: WS 738:
Alleluia! Sing to Jesus

1. Alleluia! sing to Jesus!  
His the scepter, His the throne. 
Alleluia! His the triumph,  
His the victory alone. 
Hark! the songs of peaceful Zion  
thunder like a mighty flood. 
Jesus out of every nation  
has redeemed us by His blood. 

2. Alleluia! bread of angels,  
Thou on earth our food, our stay; 
Alleluia! here the sinful  
flee to Thee from day to day: 
Intercessor, Friend of sinners,  
Earth’s Redeemer, plead for me, 
Where the songs of all the sinless  
sweep across the crystal sea. 

3. Alleluia! not as orphans  
are we left in sorrow now; 
Alleluia! He is near us,  
faith believes, nor questions how; 
Though the cloud from sight received Him  
when the forty days were o’er 
Shall our hearts forget His promise,  
“I am with you evermore”?
