My soul clings to the dust;
Give me life according to your word!
When I told of my ways, you answered me;
Teach me your statutes!
Make me understand the way of your precepts,
And I will meditate on your wondrous works.
My soul melts away for sorrow;
Strengthen me according to your word!
Put false ways far from me
And graciously teach me your law!
I have chosen the way of faithfulness;
I set your rules before me.
I cling to your testimonies, O LORD;
Let me not be put to shame!
I will run in the way of your commandments
When you enlarge my heart! (Psalm 119:25-32 ESV)
