149. 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 now my eyes from vanity,
and cause me in your ways to tread;
O let your servant prove your word
and thus to godly fear be led.

4 Turn away my reproach and fear;
your righteous judgments I confess;
to know your precepts I desire;
revive me in your righteousness.
