Perfection of the Law and Testimony.
Thy law is perfect, Lord of light;
Thy testimonies sure;
The statutes of thy realm are right,
And thy commandments pure.
2 Let these, O God, my soul convert,
And make thy servant wise;
Let those be gladness to my ears --
The dayspring to mine eyes.
3 By these may I be warned betimes;
Who knows the guile within?
Lord, save me from presumptuous crimes;
Cleanse me from secret sin.
4 So may the words my lips express --
The thoughts that throng my mind --
O Lord, my strength and righteousness,
With thee acceptance find.
