119C. Teach Me, O LORD, Your Way of Truth

1 Teach me, O LORD, your way of truth,
and from it I will not depart.
that I may steadfastly obey,
give me an understanding heart.

2 In your commandments make me walk,
for in your law my joy shall be.
Give me a heart that loves your will,
from discontent and envy free.

3 Turn heart and eye from vanities,
preserve my life within your way.
Confirm to me your holy word
promised to those who fear your name.

4 LORD, turn away disgrace and dread.
Your righteous judgments I confess.
To know your word is my desire.
Revive me in your righteousness.
