David was a decided man, he took strong ground and did not compromise, he loved right and hated wrong. That is the only safe position: there let us be found.
Great is their peace who love thy law,
How firm their souls abide!
Nor can a bold temptation draw
Their steady feet aside.
Thou hast inclined this heart of mine,
Thy statutes to fulfil;
And thus, till mortal life shall end,
Would I perform thy will.
