338. True Love for the Word

1 O Lord, Thy perfect righteousness
Is in thy judgments shown;
In Thy unchanging faithfulness
Thy truth Thou hast made known.

2 Because Thy foes forget Thy law
My soul is greatly stirred;
Thy servant loves the purity
Of Thy most holy word.

3 Tho' I am humble and despised,
I strive Thy will to do;
Eternal is Thy righteousness,
And all Thy law is true.

4 Delight amid distress and pain
Do Thy commandments give;
Thy word is righteous evermore,
Teach me that I may live.
