Hymn/Song Information

The love that to thy laws I bear no

The love that to thy laws I bear
no language can display;
They with fresh wonders entertain
my ravished thoughts all day.

Through thy commands I wiser grow
than all my subtle foes;
For thy sure word doth me direct,
and all my ways dispose.

From me my former teachers now
may abler counsel take,
Because thy sacred precepts I
my constant study make.

In understanding I excel
the sages of our days;
Because by thy unerring rules
I order all my ways.

My feet with care I have refrained
from ev'ry sinful way,
That to thy sacred word I might
entire obedience pay.

I have not from thy judgments strayed,
by vain desires misled;
For, Lord, thou hast instructed me
thy righteous paths to tread.

How sweet are all thy words to me !
O what divine repast!
How much more grateful to my soul
than honey to my taste!

Taught by thy sacred precepts, I
with heav'nly skill am blest:
Through which the treach'rous ways of sin
I utterly detest.
