119N. 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 Severe affliction, LORD, is mine;
send help according to your word.
Accept my sacrifice of praise
and make me know your judgments, LORD.

3 In constant danger is my life,
your righteous law I'll not forget.
I have not from your precepts strayed,
despite the snares the wicked set.

4 Your precepts are my heritage;
they daily make my heart rejoice.
To keep your statutes faithfully
shall ever be my willing choice.
