How I Love Thy Law, O Lord!
Words: from Psalm 119, The Psalter, 1912, alt. 1950
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. Refrain: 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. Refrain 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. Refrain
