1 How shall the young direct their way?
What light shall be their perfect guide?
Your word, O Lord, will safely lead
if in its wisdom they confide.
2 Sincerely I have sought you, Lord;
O let me not from you depart;
to know your will and keep from sin,
your word I cherish in my heart.
3 O blessed Lord, teach me your law,
your righteous judgments I declare;
your testimonies make me glad,
for they are wealth beyond compare.
4 Upon your precepts and your ways
my heart will meditate with awe;
your Word shall be my chief delight,
and I will not forget your law.
