A Commentary On The Psalms From Primitive and Mediæval Writers Volumes 1 To 4 by Rev. J.M. Neale D.D.

O GOD of measureless might,* Who graciously bestowest mercy and judgment upon Thy servants; grant that we may faithfully love Thee, enter upon the right way, and depart from the vanity of hateful pride. (1.)

Singing unto Thee of Thy mercy and judgment, O LORD,* we pray and make music, beseeching that we may walk with understanding in the way of godliness, so that by the prompting of mercy we may keep in the straight path, and in fear of judgment may correct our errors. (1.)

We sing of mercy and judgment unto Thee, O LORD,* our SAVIOUR and Judge, help us with the one, warn us with the other; on that side is the light of pity, on this the rule of inquiry. Grant us Thy humble servants, O LORD, that a froward heart may not cleave to us, and that evil things before our eyes may not allure us, but that walking in the simplicity of innocence, Thou mayest lead us on in Thy pity and love, and absolve us as a truthful Judge. (11.)

Grant us, O LORD, (D. C.) through the interposition of Thy mercy, we beseech Thee, not to cling to a froward heart, but cause us to walk alway innocently in Thy courts, that pleasing Thee, Thou mayest vouchsafe to bring us to the fellowship of Thine everlasting glory. (1.)
