Thou Didst Make the Promise

Hear my prayer, O LORD, give ear to my supplications: 
in thy faithfulness answer me, and in thy righteousness.   
                                             Psalms 143:1

It was thy righteousness that thou didst make the promise, but it is
thy faithfulness that thou wilt keep thy promise: and seeing I am
certain of thy making it, how can I be doubtful of thy keeping
it?  If thou shouldst not answer me in thy righteousness, yet thou
shouldst be righteous still; but if thou shouldst not answer me in
thy faithfulness, thou shouldst not be faithful still.
                                             Sir Richard Baker
