Representative Text

1 La ley de Dios perfecta es:
Convierte al pecador;
Su testimonio es tan fiel
Que al simple iluminó.

2 Los mandamientos del Señor
Dan gozo al corazón;
Tan puro su precepto es
Que aclara la visión.

3 Es limpio el temor de Dios,
Que permanecerá;
Los sabios juicios del Señor,
Son justos, son verdad.

5 Deseables más que el oro son,
Sus juicios, mucho más;
Aun más dulces que la miel
Que fluye del panal.
