Hymn/Song Information

O how I love Thy holy law Tis daily my




O how I love Thy holy law!
íTis daily my delight;
And thence my meditations draw
Divine advice by night.


My waking eyes prevent the day
To meditate Thy Word;
My soul with longing melts away
To hear Thy Gospel, Lord.


How doth Thy Word my heart engage!
How well employ my tongue!
And in my tiresome pilgrimage,
Yields me a heavenly song.


Am I a stranger or at home,
íTis my perpetual feast;
Not honey dropping from the comb
So much allures the taste.


No treasures so enrich the mind;
Nor shall Thy Word be sold
For loads of silver well refined,
Nor heaps of choicest gold.


When nature sinks, and spirits droop,
Thy promises of grace
Are pillars to support my hope,
And there I write Thy praise.


---Alternative verses---


Thy heavenly words my heart engage,
And well employ my tongue,
And, through my weary pilgrimage,
Yield me a heavenly song.
