Isaac Watts, 1719
How shall the young secure their hearts|
And guard their lives from sin?
Thy Word the choicest rules imparts
To keep the conscience clean.
2. When once it enters to the mind,
3. Tis like the sun, a heavenly light,
4. The men that keep Thy Law with care
5. Thy precepts make me truly wise:|
I hate the sinner's road;
I hate my own vain thoughts that rise,
But love Thy Law, my God.
6. The starry heavens Thy rule obey,
7. But still Thy Law and Gospel, Lord,
6. Thy Word is everlasting truth;
