Hymn/Song Information

Instruct me Lord in the right way of thy statutes




Instruct me, Lord, in the right way
of thy statutes divine,
And them to keep unto the end
my heart I will incline.


Grant me the knowledge of thy law,
and I shall it obey;
With heart and mind and all my might
I will it keep alway.


In the right paths of thy commands
guide me, Lord, I require;
No other pleasure do I wish,
no greater thing desire.


Incline mine heart thy laws to keep,
and cov'nants to embrace;
And from all filthy avarice,
Lord, shield me with thy grace.


From vain desires and worldly lusts
turn back my eyes and light,
And with thy Spirit strengthen me
to walk thy ways aright.


Confirm thy gracious promise, Lord,
which thou hast made to me,
Who am thy servant, and do love,
and nothing fear but thee.


Reproach and shame, which I do fear,
from me, O Lord, expel;
For thou dost judge with equity,
and therein dost excel.


Behold, my heart's desire is bent
thy laws to keep alway:
O strengthen me so with thy grace,
that it perform I may.
