1. Righteous are You, Lord God.
Righteous are the laws that You give. (You give)
Give me understanding.
Through Your Word alone do I live. (I live)
For You are my one true light.
Your law is my delight.
And, Lord, know that I love You.
I always will be true!
2. Often am I tested.
Many those who heed not Your law! (Your law)
Yet will I be faithful:
faithful to the Word of my God! (my God)
3. Though assailed by troubles,
though I may be held in disdain, (disdain)
You are always with me:
all else fails, but Your Word remains. (remains)
