Blessed are those that be undefiled

Language: English after the Latin

Blessed are those that be undefiled in the way,
and walk in the law of the Lord.
Blessed are they that keep his testimonies,
and seek him with their whole heart.
For they that do no wickedness
walk in his ways.
Thou hast charged us, O Lord,
that we shall diligently keep thy commandments.
O that our ways were made so direct
that we might keep thy statutes.
So shall we not be confounded
while we have respect unto all thy commandments.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
