2211. How Can I, Lord, Keep My Way Pure?

1. How can I, Lord, keep my way pure?
To Your Word I must be true.
So I seek You with my whole heart;
Do not let me stray from You.

2. Your Word’s hidden in my heart, Lord,
That I might not go astray.
Praise to You, O Lord, my Father;
Teach me Your decrees each day.

3. With my lips I recount gladly
All the laws You’ve giv’n to man.
I rejoice in all Your statutes,
As in wealth too vast to scan.

4. Meditating on Your precepts,
I consider all Your ways.
I delight in Your decrees, Lord;
I will never turn away.
