Hymn/Song Information

All thoughts that vain and wicked are I

All thoughts that vain and wicked are
I do always detest;
But for thy precepts and thy laws,
I ever love them best.

Thou art my hid and secret place,
my shield and strong defense;
Therefore have I thy promises
looked for with confidence.

Therefore ye evil doers all,
away from me be gone;
For the commandments will I keep
of God my Lord alone.

As thou hast promised, so perform
that I may live and be
Never ashamed of the hope
which thou hast given me.

Uphold me, and I shall be safe
for ought they do or say,
And in thy statutes pleasure take
I will both night and day.

Under thy feet thou hast trod such
as do thy statutes break;
For naught avails their subtlety,
their counsels are too weak.

Like dross thou cast'st the wicked out
Wherever they do dwell;
Therefore can I as thy commands
love nothing half so well.

My flesh doth quake for fear of thee,
my soul is much dismayed;
By reason of thy judgments great
my heart is sore afraid.
