View lyrics
I love Your perfect law
And empty thoughts despise.
You are my shield and hiding place;
On You my hope relies.

The wicked must depart,
That I may keep Your ways.
Preserve me by Your promised word;
I will not be ashamed.

Uphold me, Lord, and save,
That I may heed Your ways.
You spurn the ones who go astray;
Their falsehood is in vain.

You cleanse the earth from wrong,
So I will love Your law;
My flesh will tremble, fearing You,
The mighty Judge of all.
