557. Blest Are the Undefiled

1 Blest are the undefiled in heart,
Whose ways are right and clean,
Who never from the law depart,
But fly from ev'ry sin.

2 Blest are the men who keep your Word
And practice your commands;
With their whole heart they seek the Lord,
And serve you with their hands.

3 Great is their peace who love thy law;
How firm their souls abide!
Nor can a bold temptation draw
Their steady feet aside.

4 Then shall my heart have inward joy,
And keep my face from shame,
When all your statutes I obey,
And honor all your Name.
