Representative Text

1 Unspotted is the fear of God,
And ever doth endure;
The judgments of the Lord are truth,
And righteousness most pure.

Refrain:
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 They more than gold, yea, much fine gold,
To be desired are;
Than honey, from the honey-comb
That droppeth, sweeter far. [Refrain]

3 Moreover they Thy servant warn,
How he his life should frame.
A great reward provided is
For them that keep the same. [Refrain]

4 Who can his errors understand?
From secret faults me cleanse;
Thy servant also keep Thou back
From all presumptuous sins; [Refrain]

5 And do not suffer them to have
Dominion over me;
I shall be righteous, then, and from
The great transgression free. [Refrain]
