Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Deceitful thoughts and practices

Deceitful thoughts and practices

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

113 Deceitful thoughts and practices
I utterly detest;
But to thy law affection bear
Too great to be exprest.

114 My hiding place, my refuge-tow'r,
And shield art thou, O Lord;
I firmly anchor all my hopes
On thy unerring word.

115 Hence, ye that trade in wickedness,
Approach not my abode;
For firmly I resolve to keep
The precepts of my God.

116 According to thy gracious word,
From danger set me free;
Nor make me of those hopes asham'd,
That I repose in thee.

117 Uphold me, so shall I be safe,
And rescu'd from distress;
To thy decrees continually
My just respect address.

118 the wicked thou hast trod to earth,
Who from thy statutes stray'd;
Their vile deceit the just reward,
Of their own falsehood made.

119 The wicked from thy holy land
Thou dost like dross remove;
I therefore, with such justice charm'd,
Thy testimonies love.

120 Yet with that love they make me dread
Lest I should so offend,
When on transgressors I behold
Thy judgments thus descend.
