O how I love thy holy law!
‘Tis daily my delight;

Or, The Word of God Dwelling in Us

Ver. 97

O how I love thy holy law!
      ‘Tis daily my delight;
And thence my meditations draw
      Divine advice by night.

Ver. 148

My waking eyes prevent the day
      To meditate thy word;
My soul with longing melts away
      To hear thy gospel, Lord.

Ver. 3,13,54

How doth thy word my heart engage!
      How well employ my tongue!
And in my tiresome pilgrimage,
      Yields me a heav’nly song.

Ver. 19,103

Am I a stranger or at home,
      ‘Tis my perpetual feast;
Not honey dropping from the comb
      So much allures the taste.

Ver. 72,127

No treasures so enrich the mind;
      Nor shall thy word be sold
For loads of silver well refined,
      Nor heaps of choicest gold.

Ver. 28,49,175

When nature sinks, and spirits droop,
      Thy promises of grace
Are pillars to support my hope,
      And there I write thy praise.

~ Isaac Watts
