200. O perfect law of the Most High!

1 O perfect law of the Most High!
Law ever holy, just, and good!
No other code with thee can vie,
Unrivaled thou hast ever stood.

2 Let thy ten words my soul convert
From every false and sinful way;
Write thy pure precepts on my heart,
That from thy truth I may not stray.

3 Then in the glorious world to come,
No more I'll need the chastening rod;
For all who reach that blissful home
Will be in harmony with God.
