"THE LAW OF THE LORD"
Music & Lyrics by Sonia King

The Commandments of God enlighten the eyes,
they are perfect and sure,
they are making me wise.
The Law of the Lord is reviving my soul,
I desire them more than fine gold, O Lord
I desire them more than fine gold.

By keeping your law, your servants are warned,
and in keeping them all, there is a reward.
But who can discern all the errors I make?
Clean me from hidden mistakes, O Lord,
clean me from hidden mistakes.

Let the words of my mouth
and the thoughts of my heart
be pleasing to you,
without blame in your sight!

By keeping your Law
there is a reward.
O how great is the Law of the Lord.

The heavens are telling the glory of God,
there is no speech, their voice is not heard -
yet day after day and then night after night,
they speak to the ends of the earth, O Lord,
they speak to the ends of the earth.

There is a tent for the sun which you made.
Its' rising is from the heaven's end.
Like a bridegroom, who leaves and comes forth.
like a strong man who is running a course, O Lord.
Like a strong man who is running a course.

O Lord my great Rock
My Redeemer, my God.
These words that I sing,
proclaim your great works.

The Law of the Lord is reviving my soul.
I desire them more than fine gold, O Lord,
I desire them more than fine gold.

O how great is the Law of the Lord!
