The Soul Can Be Revised

In the perfection of the law of God the soul can be revised.

Finding foundations in what God decrees, the simple are made wise

—-

What can be known from e’re there was a mind; the heart in joy finds right,

and the commands that from our Maker come give light unto our eyes.

—-

Awe-filled regard for all God is and does will evermore endure

What we have seen of God’s own righteousness is altogether pure. 

—-

Sweeter than honey from the purest source, more valued than fine gold,

This law will guide us, lead to our reward within our shepherd’s fold. 

—-

Thus may the meditations of my heart and ev’ry thing I say

Find full acceptance, for you, God, alone, redeem and keep me safe.
