“And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts”
Psalm 119:45 (KJV)

I hasten to Thee with determined pace
You are righteousness and just.
Wandering among the words You speak
I draw toward my center sanctified trust.

Lingering among words so clean,
Cutting to the core.
Freeing from my arduous past,
Your face clearer than before.

Here I shall walk in liberty,
And I shall seeketh You.
I incline my ear to Your words
Each syllable brand new.

Utterance for all mankind,
Thus penetrates my soul.
From Your mouth, rules for life,
How simple is my role?

Really though, how I labor toward thee
A lot cast by resistant heart.
Soon, with said determined pace,
I stand upright where Thou art.
