1009. Oh, Write Thy Law

1 Oh, write Thy wondrous love divine
Upon the tables of my heart,
That I may keep Thy statutes, Lord,
And never from Thy way depart.

Refrain:
Oh, may Thy perfect law of truth,
Through seasons’ change, by day and night,
Be light and life and strength to me,
My meditation, my delight.

2 Oh, write Thy law of holiness
In living characters of flame,
That by a life of purity
I may be worthy of Thy name. [Refrain]

3 Oh, write Thy law of tenderness
And of compassion in my breast,
Till heart and voice and hand reach out
To help the weary and distressed. [Refrain]

4 Oh, write Thy law, Thy law of love
Within me till my soul shall be,
By bonds no storm can ever break,
United to Thy flock and Thee. [Refrain]
