R. Your promise is sweet to my taste.
1. I rejoiced to do your will
as though all riches were mine.
Your will is my delight;
your statutes are my counsellors. (R.)
2. The law from your mouth means more to me
than silver and gold.
Your promise is sweeter to my taste
than honey in the mouth. (R.)
3. Your will is my heritage for ever,
the joy of my heart.
I open my mouth and I sigh
as I yearn for your commands. (R.)
Blessed are you, Father,
Lord of heaven and earth,
for revealing the mysteries of the kingdom
to mere children.
