Instead of counting how many weeks we’ve been at this (this is week 18!), let’s start a countdown. Only five more weeks and the Long Song study will be done! The finish line is in sight. Let’s finish this race!
Totally perfect — that’s You, Lord;
and Your commands are right on, too.
Talk about handing out great rules!
I trust them with my heart and soul.
Tired out by my own fervor,
I’m appalled that some blow You off.
Tested and tried and verified,
Your promises are dearly loved.
Though I am deprived and picked on,
I call to mind Your wise counsel.
Truth is found in all of Your laws;
Your goodness never expires.
Trouble comes at me from all sides,
but I won’t let it steal my joy.
Timeless and flawless are Your words,
so teach me how to live by them.
