They are happy

Psalm 118

  • Refrain:
    They are happy who follow God's law.
    They are happy who follow God's law.
  1. They are happy whose life is blameless,
    who follow God's law.
    They are happy those who do God's will,
    seeking God with all their hearts.
  2. You have laid down your precepts
    to be obeyed with care.
    May my footsteps be firm
    to obey your statutes.
  3. Bless you servant and I shall live
    and obey your word.
    Open my eyes that I may consider
    the wonders of your law.
  4. Teach me the demands of your statutes,
    I will keep them to the end.
    Train me to observe your law,
    to keep it with all my heart.
