Jason is right that this is a general rule, and that exceptions seem to be made when the object is long or complex. In the event of a long or complex object, an adverb in final position (i.e. after the object) would be too far removed from the verb.
Here are some examples from print of the order verb-adverb-object:
"Be pleased to confirm in faith and charity your pilgrim Church on earth...." (prayer from the Roman Missal, 3rd ed., p.1075)
"...that we, who commemorate in faith the Mother of your Son, may be saved by his Incarnation." (prayer from Roman Missal, 3rd ed., p. 977)
"Thus, the subjects had to learn by trial and error the conditional relations between the instructional cues and the hand postures." (Neuroscience of Rule-Guided Behavior, 2008, p. 7)
"There are people in many countries all over the world who teach by example all the things we want to learn." (Why Teach? by Delia Louise Larson Sharp, 1957, p. 73)
"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." (Gettysburg Address)
