191. How perfect is thy word!

1 How perfect is thy word!
Thy judgments are all just;
And ever in thy promise, Lord,
May man securely trust.

2 I hear thy word in love,
In faith thy word obey;
O send thy Spirit from above,
To teach me, Lord, thy way.

3 Thy counsels all are plain,
Thy precepts all are pure;
And long as heaven and earth remain,
Thy truth shall still endure.

4 O, may my soul with joy
Trust in thy faithful word;
Be it through life my glad employ,
To keep thy precepts, Lord.
