Psalm 19: The Precepts of the Lord

Rebecca De La Torre

Lyrics / Letras

The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart.

Verse 1:

The law of the LORD is perfect,
refreshing the soul;
the decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
giving wisdom to the simple.

Verse 2:

The fear of the LORD is pure,
enduring forever;
the ordinances of the LORD are true,
all of them just.

Verse 3:

Though your servant is careful of them,
very diligent in keeping them,
yet who can detect failings?
Cleanse me from my unknown faults!

Verse 4:

From wanton sin especially, restrain your servant;
let it not rule over me.
Then shall I be blameless and innocent
of serious sin.
