"JEHOVAH'S PERFECT LAW"
This section of Psalm 19 set to music reminds us of many excellent qualities of Scripture, among them the fact that it is written clearly: "The testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple" (v. 7).
(Use the tune of "We Come, O Christ, to You.") Jehovah's perfect law restores the soul again; His testimony sure gives wisdom unto men; The precepts of the Lord are right, And fill the heart with great delight. The Lord's commands are pure; they light and joy restore; Jehovah's fear is clean, enduring evermore; His statutes, let the world confess, Are wholly truth and righteousness. They are to be desired above the finest gold; Than honey from the comb more sweetness far they hold; With warnings they your servant guard, In keeping them is great reward.
His errors who can know? Cleanse me from hidden stain;
Keep me from willful sins, nor let them o'er me reign;
And then I upright shall appear
And be from great transgressions clear.
Whene'er you search my life, may all my thoughts within
And all the words I speak your full approval win.
And my Redeemer you shall be.
From: The Psalter 1912 (taken from Ps. 19:7-14)
