Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 God's law is perfect and converts
The soul in sin that lies;
God's testimony is most sure,
And makes the simple wise.

O how love I Thy law!
O how love I Thy law!
It is my meditation all the day;
O how love I Thy law!
O how love I Thy law!
It is my meditation all the day.

2 The statutes of the Lord are right
And do rejoice the heart;
The Lord's command is pure and doth
Light to the eyes impart. [Refrain]

3 Unspotted is the fear of God
And ever doth endure;
The judgments of the Lord are truth
And righteousness most pure. [Refrain]

4 Moreover, they Thy servant warn
How he his life should frame;
A great reward provided is
For them that keep the same. [Refrain]
