119D. Your Word Sheds Light upon My Path

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.
