Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Thy word is to my feet a lamp

Thy word is to my feet a lamp and to my path a light

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

Thy word is to my feet a lamp,
and to my path a light.
I sworn have, and I will perform,
to keep thy judgments right.

I am with sore affliction
ev’n overwhelm’d, O Lord:
In mercy raise and quicken me,
according to thy word.

The free-will-off ‘rings of my mouth
accept, I thee beseech:
And unto me thy servant, Lord,
thy judgments clearly teach.

Though still my soul be in my hand,
thy laws I’ll not forget.
>I err’d not from them, though for me
the wicked snares did set.

I of thy testimonies have
above all things made choice,
To be my heritage for aye;
for they my heart rejoice.

I carefully inclined have
my heart still to attend;
That I thy statutes may perform
alway unto the end.

Scottish Psalter and Paraphrases, 1800
