How I Love Thy Law, O Lord!

Full Text

1 How I love Thy law, O Lord!
Daily joy its truth afford;
In its constant light I god,
Wise to conquer every foe.

2 Thy commandments in my heart
Truest wisdom can impart;
To my eyes Thy precepts show
Wisdom more than sages know.

3 While my heart Thy word obeys,
I am kept from evil ways;
From Thy law, with Thee to guide,
I have never turned aside.

4 Sweeter are Thy words to me
Than all other good can be;
Safe I walk, Thy truth my light,
Hating falsehood, loving right.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
