1 How blest the perfect in the way
Who from God's law do not depart,
Who, holding fast the word of truth,
Seek Him with undivided heart.

2 Yea, they are kept from paths of sin
Who walk in God's appointed way;
Thy precepts Thou hast given us
That we should faithfully obey.

3 My wavering heart is now resolved
Thy holy statutes to fulfill;
No more shall I be brought to shame
When I regard Thy holy will.

4 To Thee my praise sincere shall rise
When I Thy righteous judgments learn;
Forsake me not, but be my guide,
And from Thy truth I will not turn.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
