“The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the soul
The testimony of the Lord is sure making wise the simple
The precepts of the Lord are right rejoicing the heart
The commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes
The fear of the Lord is clean enduring forever
The ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether,
More to be desired than gold, yea than much fine gold.” (Psalms 19:7-10)
Heavenly Father,
Thy rule is constant;
the standards Thou hast set for mankind
are as applicable today as ever in the past.
Thy law is fixed and determined;
Thy commandments are unchanging;
Thy precepts are invariable.
From generation to generation
Thou art ever the same.
May we, Thy children,
with our shifting standards
hold fast to Thee, Thou Rock of Ages.
May we whose values are never constant
cleave to Thee, the one unchanging reality
in a constantly changing world.
Though we shift our material standards
for temporary advantage and relief—
grant that we may hold fast to Thee,
our shield and protector,
our Rock and our Redeemer.
