Psalm 19:7-10 “The LAW of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul; The TESTIMONY of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple;
The STATUTES of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; The COMMANDMENT of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes;
The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; The JUDGMENTS of the LORD are true and righteous altogether.
More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.”

Blest are the undefiled in heart,
Whose ways are right and clean:
Who never from Your laws depart.
Turning from all that’s obscene!
Blest are those who keep Your Word
Obeying Your commands;
With their whole heart they seek You Lord,
And serve You with clean hands!
Great is their peace who love Your law
In it their souls abide!
Nor can a little leaven draw
Their steady feet aside!
Then shall my heart have inward joy
Keeping my life from shame,
When all Your statutes I obey
Honoring Your great Name!
My portion is to use Your sword
Your judgments every day.
Making haste to obey You Lord
Defeating the enemy without delay!
If once I wander from Your plans
Then I ask You to search my ways!
Turning my feet to Your commands
Walking rightly giving You praise!
Those who keep Your laws with care,
Bringing joy for obeying You Lord!
Giving thanks for them in their prayers
And in their heart You are adored!
Oh how I love Your holy law!
It is my daily delight
And from my studies draw
To walk in truth that’s always right!
I see in Your charges the way to peace.
And Your testimonies ever in my sight.
In Your precepts my worries do cease
Keeping them brings fresh delight!
Oh Lord each day Your statutes renew
And heavenly truth impart
Your plan for me I’ll pursue
Your Laws shall rule my heart
Make me to walk in Your commands
Knowing how to use Your sword
Let not my head, or heart or hands,
Offend against my glorious Lord.
With my whole heart I’ve sought Your face
That from Your laws to never stray
And all of self please erase!
So true obedience will guide my way!
