     161 SCHIN. Princes have persecuted me without a cause: but my heart standeth in awe of thy word.

     162 I rejoice at thy word, as one that findeth great spoil.

     163 I hate and abhor lying: but thy law do I love.

     164 Seven times a day do I praise thee because of thy righteous judgments.

     165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

     166 LORD, I have hoped for thy salvation, and done thy commandments.

     167 My soul hath kept thy testimonies; and I love them exceedingly. 168 I have kept thy precepts and thy testimonies: for all my ways are before thee.(KJV)

1. O God, our Lord, Your holy Word 
Was long a hidden treasure 
Till to its place It is by grace 
Restored n fullest measure. 
For this today Our thanks we say 
And gladly glorify you. 
Your mercy show And grace bestow 
On all who still deny you. 

2. Salvation true By faith in you, 
That is your Gospel’s preaching, 
The heart and core Of Bible lore 
In all its sacred teaching. 
In Christ we must Put all our trust, 
Not in our deeds or labor; 
With conscience pure And heart secure 
Love you, Lord, and our neighbor. 

3. Lord, you alone This work have done 
By your free grace and favor. 
All who believe Will grace receive 
Through Jesus Christ, our Savior. 
And though the foe Would over throw 
Your Word with grim endeavor, 
What plan he tries, It always dies; 
Your Word will stand forever. 

4. You are my Lord, And by your Word 
Death holds no dreadful terrors; 
Your precious blood, My highest good, 
Has blotted out my errors. 
My thanks to you! Your Word is true, 
You keep your promise ever. 
While here I live, Your grace you give 
And heaven’s bliss forever.
