49. Thy Word Sheds Light upon My Path

1. Thy Word sheds light upon my path;
A shining light, it guides my feet;
Thy righteous judgments to observe
My solemn vow I now repeat.

2. In my distress I plead with thee,
Send help according to thy Word;
Accept my sacrifice of praise
And make me know thy judgments, Lord.

3. In danger oft and nigh to death,
I find thy law my steadfast aid.
The wicked seek my overthrow,
Yet from thy truth I have not strayed.

4. Thy precepts are my heritage,
For daily they my heart rejoice;
To keep thy statutes faithfully
Shall ever be my willing choice.
