325. Instruction in the Divine Law

1 Teach me, O Lord, Thy way of truth,
And from it I will not depart;
That I may steadfastly obey,
Give me an understanding heart.

2 In Thy commandments make me walk,
For in Thy law my joy shall be;
Give me a heart that loves Thy will,
From discontent and envy free.

3 Turn Thou my eyes from vanity,
And cause me in thy ways to tread;
O let Thy servant prove Thy word
And thus to godly fear be led.

4 Turn Thou away reproach and fear;
Thy righteous judgments I confess;
To know Thy precepts i desire,
Revive me in thy righteousness.
