TEACH ME THE WAY OF THY STATUTES




O that the Lord would guide my ways
To keep His statutes still!
O that my God would grant me grace
To know and do His will!


O send Thy Spirit down to write
Thy law upon my heart!
Nor let my tongue indulge deceit,
Nor act the liarís part.


From vanity turn off my eyes;
Let no corrupt design,
Nor covetous desires, arise
Within this soul of mine.


Order my footsteps by Thy Word,
And make my heart sincere;
Let sin have no dominion, Lord,
But keep my conscience clear.


My soul hath gone too far astray,
My feet too often slip;
Yet since Iíve not forgot Thy way,
Restore Thy wandering sheep.


Make me to walk in Thy commands,
íTis a delightful road;
Nor let my head, or heart, nor hands,
Offend against my God.


---Alternative verses---


Send Thy good Spirit down to write
Thy law upon my heart!
Nor let my tongue indulge deceit,
Nor act the liarís part.


From vanity turn off mine eyes;
Let no corrupt design,
Nor covetous desires, arise
Within this soul of mine.


Assist my soul, too apt to stray,
A stricter watch to keep;
And should I e'er forget Thy way,
Restore Thy wandering sheep.


My soul hath gone too far astray,
My feet too often slip;
Yet, since I keep in mind Thy way,
Restore Thy wandering sheep.


My soul has gone too far astray,
My feet too often slip;
Yet since Iíve not forgot thy way,
Restore thy wandering sheep.
