Representative Text

1 Jehovah's perfect law
Restores the soul again;
His testimony sure
Gives wisdom unto men;
The precepts of the Lord are right,
And fill the heart with great delight.

2 The Lord's commands are pure,
They light and joy restore;
Jehovah's fear is clean,
Enduring evermore;
His statutes, let the world confess,
Are wholly truth and righteousness.

3 They are to be desired
Above the finest gold;
Than honey from the comb
More sweetness far they hold;
With warnings they Thy servant guard,
In keeping them is great reward.

4 His errors who can know?
Cleanse me from hidden stain;
Keep me from willful sins,
Nor let them o'er me reign;
And then I upright shall appear
And be from great transgressions clear.

5 When Thou dost search my life,
May all my thoughts within
And all the words I speak
Thy full approval win.
O Lord, Thou art a rock to me,
And my Redeemer Thou shalt be.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
