You, Lord, have the message

Psalm 18

  • Refrain:
    You, Lord, have the message of eternal lfe.
  1. The law of the Lord is perfect,
    it revives the soul;
    the rule of the Lord is to be trusted,
    it gives wisdom to the simple.
  2. The rule of the Lord is right,
    it gives joy to the heart;
    the commandment of the Lord is clear,
    it gives light to the eyes.
  3. The fear of the Lord is holy,
    lasting for ever;
    the rulings of the Lord are truth
    and all are just.
  4. They are more desired than gold,
    than the purest gold;
    and sweeter are they than honey,
    than honey from a comb.
