Psalter 38

Verse 1
Jehovah's perfect law
Restores the soul again;
His testimonies sure
Gives wisdom unto men;
The precepts of the Lord are right,
And fill the heart with great delight.

Verse 2
The Lord's commands are pure,
They light and joy restore;
Jehovah's fear is clean,
Enduring evermore;
His statutes, let the world confess,
Are wholly truth and righteousness.

Verse 3
They are to be desired
Above the finest gold;
Then honey from the comb
More sweetness far they hold;
With warnings they Thy servant guard,
In keeping them is great reward.

Verse 4
His errors who can know?
Cleanse me from hidden stain;
Keep me from willful sins,
Nor let them o'er me reign;
And then I upright shall appear
And be from great transgressions clear.

Verse 5
When Thou dost search my life,
May all my tho'ts within
And all the words I speak
Thy full approval win.
On Lord, Thou are a rock to me,
And my Redeemer Thou shalt be.
