1 Since with my God with perfect heart
I walk and make His word my guide,
And from iniquity depart,
The Lord His blessing will provide.
2 The merciful shall know Thy grace,
The perfect Thy perfection see,
The pure shall see Thy own pure face,
The froward find a foe in Thee.
3 To smite the proud and bring them low,
To save the poor is Thy delight.
The Lord will cause my lamp to glow,
My God will make my darkness light.
4 From God the victory I receive;
Most perfect is His holy way;
His word is tried, they who believe
Will find the Lord their shield and stay.
5 For who is God, and strong to save,
Beside the Lord our God of might?
'Tis He that makes me strong and brave,
The Lord Who guides my steps aright.
6 Thy free salvation is my shield,
My sure defense in every strait;
Thy hand upholds me, lest I yield;
Thy gentleness has made me great.
