Lyrics

Let my cry come before you, O Lord
Give me understanding
Let my prayer come before you, O God
Save me like you promised

I pour out my praise
As you teach me your law
I sing of the grace
And the truth in your word

Lord, help me to stand
As I follow your ways
I need your commands
And your word that sustains

Even when I wander
Still your voice is calling
I have not forgotten your commands

Story

Bruce Benedict at Cardiphonia sent a commission for an album covering the whole of Psalm 119. I picked the last of the 22 sections somewhat at random and was delighted when this song rapidly took shape as I meditated on the passage.

Due for release at the end of August 2019 on the Cardiphonia Psalm 119 album.
