Lyrics

Perfect is my heart before Thee,
Perfect walk I in Thy ways;
Perfect love even now restores me,
Perfect is my song of praise.

Refrain

I will walk with a perfect heart,
Love has cast out fear;
I will walk with a perfect heart,
Joy has dried each tear.

Perfect freedom! I declare it!
For the truth has made me free.
Perfect peace! yea, naught shall merit,
For my mind is stayed on Thee.

Refrain
