Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Show Me Thy Ways, O Lord

Show me thy ways, O Lord, And teach thy paths to me

Published in 1 hymnal

Full Text

1 Show me thy ways, O Lord,
and teach thy paths to me;
guide thou my footsteps in thy truth,
teach me to follow thee.
For thou the very God of my salvation art;
anew each day I look to thee,
to make thine own my heart.

2 Thy tender mercies, Lord,
remember thou, I pray;
thy lovingkindnesses recall,
for from of old are they;
my youthful sins forget,
as mercy is with thee;
as thou art merciful and good,
O Lord, remember me.

3 The Lord is good indeed,
and faithful he abides;
he in the way of righeousness
repentant sinners guides.
He teaches humble souls
his justice to discern;
he leadeth humble souls that they
his way of life may learn.

4 All the Lord's ways arelove;
he faithful is and true
to those who keep his covenant,
his precepts' path pursue.
I wait for thee, O God;
to thee, O Lord, I call;
Redeemer be to Israel
from their distresses all.
