O how I love thy law, it is my study

O how I love thy law, it is my study

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text


97 O how love I thy law! it is
my study all the day:
98 it makes me wiser than my foes;
for it doth with me stay.
99 Than all my teachers now I have
more understanding far;
because my meditation still
thy testimonies are.

100 In understanding I excel
even those that aged be;
because thy precepts to observe
I have sought earnestly.
101 My feet from each ill way I stayed,
that I may keep thy word.
102 I from thy judgments have not swerved;
for thou hast taught me, Lord.

103 How sweet unto my taste, O Lord,
are all thy words of truth!
Yea, I do find them sweeter far
than honey to my mouth.
104 I through thy precepts, that are pure,
do understanding get;
I therefore every way that’s false
with all my heart do hate.
