 1  How I love Thy law, O Lord!
    Daily joy its truths afford;
    In its constant light I go,
    wise to conquer ev'ry foe.

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

 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,
    May I never turn aside.
