1 Blessed are they that undefiled,
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 inclined;
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 shamed when I
thy precepts all respect.
7 Then with integrity of heart
thee will I praise and bless,
when I the judgments all have learned
of thy pure righteousness.
8 That I will keep thy statutes all
firmly resolved have I:
O do not then, most gracious God,
forsake me utterly.
