2203. How Blest the Perfect in the Way

1. How blest the perfect in the way,
Who from God’s law do not depart,
Who, holding fast the Word of truth,
Seek Him with undivided heart.

2. Yea, they are kept from paths of sin
Who walk in God’s appointed way;
Thy precepts Thou hast given us
That we should faithfully obey.

3. My wavering heart is now resolved
Thy holy statutes o fulfill;
No more shall I be brought to shame
When I regard Thy holy will.

4. To Thee my praise sincere shall rise
When I Thy righteous judgments learn;
Forsake me not, but be my Guide,
And from Thy truth I will not turn.
