Pure and unadulterated

Are the words of the Lord;

Like silver in the furnace

Is His holy precious word.

Like silver purified seven times

And brighter than any white,

Proceeds the sacredness of His voice

Projecting the purest of all light.

Not a speckle of imperfection

And without any fault or blame,

Is His reverent word, pristine and clean

As He calls us by our name.

His mercy extends far and wide

And sent His Son not to condemn,

But that the world may be saved through Him

When grace and love was sent.

Like purified silver

Are His judgments righteous and true;

Sweeter than honey and the honeycomb

Are His commandments and statutes too.

His testimony is sure and steady;

His law converts the soul,

Through the perfect law of liberty

Stamped on our heart, behold!

Like purified silver

With a hope and faith robust,

As His hand lifts us from the miry clay

And teaches us to trust.

To trust in His salvation

And promise of eternal life;

Through the crucifixion and resurrection

Of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
