Your words are spirit and life

Psalm 18

  • Refrain:
    Your words are spirit and life, O God,
    your words are spirit and life, O God,
    spirit and life, O God.
  1. The law of the Lord is perfect,
    it revives my soul.
    The rule of the Lord is to be trusted,
    it gives wisdom to God's people.
  2. The commands of the Lord are right,
    they gladden my heart.
    The command of the Lord is clear,
    it gives light to the eyes.
  3. The wonder of God is holy,
    it lasts for all time.
    The Words of God are truth,
    my Saviour, my rock.
