God's perfect law converts the soul, Reclaims from false desires

God's perfect law converts the soul, Reclaims from false desires

Published in 48 hymnals

Representative Text

1 God's perfect law converts the soul,
Reclaims from false desires;
With sacred wisdom his sure word
The ignorant inspires.

2 The statutes of the Lord are just,
And bring sincere delight;
His pure commands of living truth
Assist the feeblest sight.

3 His perfect worship here is fixed,
On sure foundations laid;
His equal laws are in the scales
Of truth and justice weighed;

4 Of more esteem than golden mines,
Or gold refined with skill;
More sweet than honey, or the drops
That from the comb distill.

5 My trusty counselors they are,
And friendly warning give;
Divine rewards attend on those
Who by thy precepts live.
