Song for Today:
Wonderful Words of Life
You have commanded your precepts
to be kept diligently.
Oh that my ways may be steadfast
in keeping your statutes!
I will meditate on your precepts
and fix my eyes on your ways.
I will delight in your statutes;
I will not forget your word.
Open my eyes, that I may behold
wondrous things out of your law.
Let your steadfast love come to me, O LORD,
your salvation according to your promise;
then shall I have an answer for him who taunts me,
for I trust in your word.
And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth,
The earth, O LORD, is full of your steadfast love;
teach me your statutes!
Your hands have made and fashioned me;
give me understanding that I may learn your commandments.
Forever, O LORD, your word
is firmly fixed in the heavens.
Your faithfulness endures to all generations;
you have established the earth, and it stands fast.
By your appointment they stand this day,
for all things are your servants.
Great peace have those who love your law;
nothing can make them stumble.
from Psalm 119
