Lord, how I love your law

Psalm 118

  • Refrain:
    Lord, how I love your law.
    Lord, how I love your law.
  1. My part, I've resolved, O Lord,
    is to obey your word.
    The law from your mouth
    means more than silver and gold.
  2. Let your love console me,
    for your law's my delight.
    I love your commands more than finest gold.
  3. Your will is wonderful
    and so I obey.
    The unfolding of your word
    gives light and teaches my soul.
