Hymn/Song Information

Deceitful thoughts and practices I utter

Deceitful thoughts and practices
I utterly detest;
But to thy law affection bear
too great to be expressed.

My hiding-place, my refuge-tow'r,
and shield art thou, O Lord;
I firmly anchor all my hopes
on thy unerring word.

Hence ye that trade in wickedness,
approach not my abode;
For firmly I resolve to keep
the precepts of my God.

According to thy gracious word
from danger set me free;
Nor make me of those hopes ashamed
that I repose on thee.

Uphold me, so shall I be safe,
and rescued from distress;
To thy decrees continually
my just respect address.

The wicked thou hast trod to earth,
who from thy statutes strayed;
Their vile deceit the just reward
of their own falsehood made.

The wicked from thy holy land
thou dost like dross remove;
I therefore, with such justice charmed,
thy testimonies love.

Yet with that love they make me dread,
lest I should so offend,
When on transgressors I behold
thy judgments thus descend.
