Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 Most perfect is the law of God,
restoring those that stray;
his testimony is most sure,
proclaiming wisdom's way.

O how love I thy law! O how love I thy law!
It is my meditation all the day.
O how love I thy law! O how love I thy law!
It is my meditation all the day.

2 The precepts of the Lord are right;
with joy they fill the heart;
the Lord's commandments all are pure,
and clearest light impart. [Refrain]

3 The fear of God is undefiled
and ever shall endure;
the statutes of the Lord are truth
and righteousness most pure. [Refrain]

4 They warn from ways of wickedness
displeasing to the Lord,
and in the keeping of his Word
there is a great reward. [Refrain]
