184. C. M. Tate & Brady. Perfection of God's Law.
1 God's perfect law converts the soul, Reclaims from false desires; With sacred wisdom his sure word The ignorant inspires.
2 The statutes of the Lord are just, And bring sincere delight; His pure commands, in search of truth, Assist the feeblest sight.
3 His perfect worship here is fixed, On sure foundations laid; His equal laws are in the scales Of truth and justice weighed.
4 Of more esteem than golden mines, Or gold refined with skill; More sweet than honey, or the drops That from the comb distil.
5 My trusty counsellors they are, And friendly warnings give; Divine rewards attend on those, Who by thy precepts live.
