Representative Text

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.
