This 12th stanza of Psalm 119 reminds us that it is God's creating and sustaining word that instructs and rescues us. ---lyrics--- Eternal is your word, O LORD; in heav’n it stands for ever sure. Your faithfulness will never fail; the earth you founded to endure. By your appointment all things stand: creation under your command. Had not your law been my delight, I would have died in misery. I never will forget your laws, for by them you have rescued me. LORD, I am yours—save me, I pray, for I have sought your precepts’ way. The wicked lie in wait for me; destruction threatens at their hands, but yet in spite of all their threats I will reflect on your commands. Perfection’s limits I have found, but your commandments have no bound.
