By what means shall a young man learn

Representative Text


9 By what means shall a young man learn
his way to purify?
If he according to thy word
thereto attentive be.
10 Unfeignedly thee have I sought
with all my soul and heart:
O let me not from the right path
of thy commands depart.

11 Thy word I in my heart have hid,
that I offend not thee.
12 O Lord, thou ever blessed art,
thy statutes teach thou me.
13 The judgements of thy mouth each one
my lips declared have:
14 more joy thy testimonies’ way
than riches all me gave.

15 Thy holy precepts I will make
my meditation still:
and have respect unto thy ways
most carefully I will.
16 Upon thy statutes my delight
shall constantly be set:
and, by thy grace, I never will
thy holy word forget.
