This is a setting of a poem by Peter Henniker-Heaton, a British writer who spent many years in Boston working for The Mother Church. The melody is fairly straightforward in 4/4 time. The accompaniment has a few mild dissonances and goes into remote keys to express a more complex mood before ending in joyful affirmation.

Because I Have Loved God’s Law
Music by John F. Wilson
Lyrics by Peter J. Henniker-Heaton

Because I have loved God’s law,
God’s law will protect me.
Deep in my heart I desire it,
So it will direct me.

Even though I stray from the path,
It will not reject me.
Far through the rocks and the briers it will seek me
And home to the fold will collect me.

Because I have loved God’s law,
God’s law will protect me.
