Psalm 119:05 Fifth Part [O How I Love Thy Holy Law!] by Isaac Watts

Delight in scripture; or, The
word of God dwelling in us.

Ver. 97.
O How I love thy holy law!
‘Tis daily my delight;
And thence my meditations draw
Divine advice by night.

Ver. 148.
My waking eyes prevent the day
To meditate thy word;
My soul with longing melts away
To hear thy gospel, Lord.

Ver. 3 13 54.
How doth thy word my heart engage!
How well employ my tongue!
And, in my tiresome pilgrimage,
Yields me a heavenly song.

Ver. 19 103.
Am I a stranger, or at home,
‘Tis my perpetual feast;
Not honey dropping from the comb
So much allures the taste.

Ver. 72 127.
No treasures so enrich the mind;
Nor shall thy word be sold
For loads of silver well refin’d,
Nor heaps of choicest gold.

Ver. 28 49 175.
When nature sinks, and spirits droop,
Thy promises of grace
Are pillars to support my hope,
And there I write thy praise.
