ST. FRANCES | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
GEORGE AUGUSTUS LOHR, 1821-1897
97 O how I love thy law! it is
My study all the day:
98 It makes me wiser than my foes;
For it doth with me stay.
99 Than all my teachers now I have
More understanding far;
Because my meditation still
Thy testimonies are.
100 In understanding I excel
Even those that aged be;
Because thy precepts to observe
I have sought earnestly.
101 My feet from each ill way I stayed,
That I may keep thy word.
102 I from thy judgments have not swerved;
For thou hast taught me, Lord.
103 How sweet unto my taste, O Lord,
Are all thy words of truth! Yea,
I do find them sweeter far
Than honey to my mouth.
104 I through thy percepts, that are pure,
Do understanding get;
I therefore every way that's false
With all my heart do hate.
