Blessed are they that undefil'd

Representative Text

1 Blessed are they that undefil’d,
and straight are in the way;
Who in the Lord’s most holy law
do walk, and do not stray.

2 Blessed are they who to observe
his statutes are inclin’d;
And who do seek the living God
with their whole heart and mind.

3 Such in his ways do walk, and they
do no iniquity.
4 Thou hast commanded us to keep
thy precepts carefully.

5 O that thy statutes to observe
thou would’st my ways direct!
6 Then shall I not be sham’d, when I
thy precepts all respect.

7 Then with integrity of heart
thee will I praise and bless,
When I the judgments all have learn’d
of thy pure righteousness.

8 That I will keep thy statutes all
firmly resolv’d have I:
O do not then, most gracious God,
forsake me utterly.
