Psalm 119

HOW I love Thy law, O Lord!

Daily joy its truths afford;

In its constant light I go,

Wise to conquer every foe.

Sweeter are Thy words to me

Than all other good can be;

Safe I walk, Thy truth my light,

Hating falsehood, loving right.


Thy commandments in my heart

Truest wisdom can impart;

To mine eyes The precepts show

Wisdom more than sages know.


While my heart Thy Word obeys,

I am kept from evil ways;

From Thy law, with Thee to guide,

I have never turned aside.
