Scripture: Psalm 19:7-14
Theme: Psalms

1.  God's law is perfect and gives life,
    Revives the weary soul;
    God's testimonies all are sure,
    Wisdom for all to hold.
    The statutes of the Lord are just
    And give the heart delight;
    God's precepts are direct and pure
    And give the eyes clear sight.

2.  The fear of God is always clean,
    Enduring as the sun;
    The judgments of the Lord are true
    And righteous, every one.
    And even more to be desired
    Than gold, the finest gold,
    And sweeter than the honeycomb,
    The words God spoke of old.

3.  Your servant finds enlightenment 
    By means of them, O Lord;
    And in the keeping of Your law,
    There is a great reward.
    But who can tell how often they
    Offend unknowingly?
    From all my secret faults, O Lord,
    I ask You to cleanse me.

4.  Lord, keep me from presumptuous sins;
    Let them not rule my soul;
    Then I shall not commit great wrongs,
    I shall be sound and whole.
    Let all my words and all my thoughts,
    My Lord, Redeemer, Might,
    Find favor now, and always win
    Acceptance in Your sight.
