Hymn/Song Information

Thy covenants are wonderful and full of




PE.
Thy covenants are wonderful,
and full of things profound;
My soul therefore doth keep them sure,
when they are tried and found.


The entrance of thy word doth give
to men a light most dear;
The simple likewise understand
when they it read or hear.


My mouth I opened and did pant,
because my soul did long
For thy commandments, which always
do guide my heart and tongue.


With mercy and compassion look
upon me from above,
As thou art wont such to behold
as thy Name fear and love.


Direct my footsteps by thy word,
that I thy will may know
And never let iniquity
thy servant overthrow.


From sland'rous tongues and deadly harms
preserve and keep me sure;
Thy precepts then will I observe,
with heart upright and pure.


Thy countenance, which doth surpass
the sun in its bright hue,
Let shine on me, and by thy law
teach me what to eschew.


Rivers of waters from my eyes
incessantly do fall,
Because I see how wicked men
thy laws keep not at all.
