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 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.
4 Your wondrous testimonies, Lord,
my soul will keep and greatly praise;
your word, by faithful lips proclaimed,
to simplest minds the truth conveys.
5 I thirst for your commandments, Lord,
and for your mercy press my claim;
O look on me and show the grace
displayed to all who love your name.
Psalter Hymnal, 1987
