O that your statutes, every hour,
might dwell upon my mind!
God, I would feel a quickening power,
and peace is there, to find.
To think upon your precepts, Lord,
shall be my sweet employ;
my soul will not forget your word;
your word is all my joy.
My lips with courage shall declare
your statutes and your name;
I’ll speak your word! Though kings may hear,
it will not cause me shame.
Depart from me, all wickedness,
all hands and hearts of ill;
I love my God! I love God’s ways!
I love to do God’s will!
