Title: Oh, how I love your law
Composer: Tim Blickhan
Original text and translations
Oh, how I love your law
It lifts the heart, it clears the mind.
The proud fall silent,
stand in awe before the scriptures you designed.
More than the wise, I understand,
since I have heard, and I believe,
freedom no sages could conceive
until they follow your command.
I shall not walk the wicked path
for I remember and obey
Why should I hesitate? I laugh,
Grateful you taught the poor to pray
How sweet are your words to my taste,
Sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Sweeter than honey to my mouth,
the words that bind and liberate.
Oh, how I love your law,
Elegant, simple, without flaw
Oh, how I love your law.
