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.

1. Your Word is a lamp for my feet,
and a light for my pathway.
I will hide Your Word in my heart,
and meditate on it each day.
Your Word has the power to give wisdom;
It’s a teacher, the equal of none;
I have sought and found truth in Your teaching
Of salvation through Jesus, Your Son.

2. Your Word is a lamp for my feet,
and a light for my pathway.
I will hide Your Word in my heart,
and meditate on it each day.
All scripture by God is inspirèd;
It rebukes us when we go astray,
It is useful for teaching, correcting,
And to train us for living God’s way.

Title: Your Word Is a Lamp for My Feet
Author: Lindsay Stein (2004)
Language: English
Notes: The hymn "Your word is a lamp for my feet" was written on Saturday 24th, July 2004 for an evening service to the following day. The Pastor had just returned from holiday, and wished to use these pass­ag­es as his text next ev­en­ing. Find­ing it dif­fi­cult to choose hymns for the ser­vice, I par­a­phrased the read­ings to pro­duce this short hymn, then wrote the tune “Home­com­ing” to fit the words. It was fin­ished off on the Sun­day af­ter­noon, played at sight by the wor­ship group at the ser­vice, and sung suc­cess­ful­ly at first time of hear­ing by a small con­gre­ga­tion.
