How I Love Thy Law, O Lord!

Representative Text

1 How I love Thy law, O Lord!
Daily joy its truths afford;
in its constant light I go,
wise to conquer every foe.

2 Thy commandments in my heart
truest wisdom can impart;
to my eyes Thy precepts show
wisdom more than sages know.

3 While my heart Thy word obeys,
I am kept from evil ways;
from Thy law, with Thee to guide,
I have never turned aside.

4 Sweeter are Thy words to me
than all other good can be;
safe I walk, Thy truth my light,
hating falsehood, loving right.
