Greene held the post of Composer to the Chapel Royal, for which this setting was presumably written. This edition substitutes a keyboard reduction for the figured bass accompaniment.
Lyrics: Psalm 119, v. 169-172

Let my complaint come before thee, O Lord: give me understanding, according to thy word.
Let my supplication come before thee: deliver me, according to thy word.
My lips shall speak of thy praise: when thou hast taught me thy statutes.
Yea, my tongue shall sing of thy word: for all thy commandments are righteous.
