392. Oh, that the Lord Would Guide My Ways

1 Oh, that the Lord would guide my ways
To keep his statutes still!
Oh, that my God would grant me grace
To know and do his will!

2 Order my footsteps by your Word
And make my heart sincere;
Let sin have no dominion, Lord,
But keep my conscience clear.

3 Assist my soul, too apt to stray,
A stricter watch to keep;
If ever I forget your way,
Restore your wand'ring sheep.

4 Make me to walk in your commands,
A most delightful road;
Nor let my head or heart or hands
Offend against my God.
