O How Love I Thy Law

Representative Text

7 God’s law is perfect, and converts
the soul in sin that lies:
God’s testimony is most sure,
and makes the simple wise.
8 The statutes of the Lord are right,
and do rejoice the heart:
the Lord’s command is pure, and doth
light to the eyes impart.

9 Unspotted is the fear of God,
and doth endure for ever:
the judgments of the Lord are true
and righteous altogether.
10 They more than gold, yea, much fine gold,
to be desired are:
than honey, honey from the comb
that droppeth, sweeter far.

11 Moreover, they thy servant warn
how he his life should frame:
a great reward provided is
for them that keep the same.

12 Who can his errors understand?
from secret faults me cleanse:
13 thy servant keep thou also back
from all presumptuous sins;

and do not suffer them to have
dominion over me:
I shall be righteous then, and clear
from great transgression be.
14 The words which from my mouth proceed,
the thoughts sent from my heart,
accept, O Lord, for thou my strength
and my Redeemer art.
