266. Thy Wondrous Testimonies, Lord

1 Thy wondrous testimonies, Lord,
My soul will keep and greatly praise;
Thy Word, by faithful lips proclaimed,
To simplest minds the truth conveys.

2 I thirst for Thy commandments, Lord,
And for Thy mercy press my claim;
O look on me, and show the grace
Displayed to all who love Thy Name.

3 Direct my footsteps in Thy Word,
From sin's dominion save my soul,
From man's oppression set me free,
That I may yield to Thy control.

4 O make Thy face to shine on me,
And teach me all Thy laws to keep;
Because Thy statutes are despised,
With overwhelming grief I weep.
