1 Your word sheds light upon my path;
a shining light, it guides my feet.
Your righteous judgments to observe,
my solemn vow I now repeat.
2 In my distress I plead with you;
send help according to your word.
Accept my sacrifice of praise
and make me know your judgments, LORD.
3 When danger brings me close to death,
your law stays with me night and day.
The wicked lay a snare for me,
yet from your truth I will not stray.
4 Your precepts are my heritage;
they make my heart and soul rejoice.
To keep your statutes faithfully
shall ever be my willing choice.
This song expresses our confidence in the truth and power of the word, as taught in Our World Belongs to God, paragraph 32 and Belgic Confession, 7: These scriptures are sufficient for they contain the will of God completely and “everything one must believe to be saved is sufficiently taught in it.”
