Verse 1:
Your Word gives light unto my path;
a shining light, it guides my feet.
Your righteous judgments to observe,
my solemn vow I now repeat.

Verse 2:
In my distress I plead with You;
send help according to Your Word.
Accept my sacrifice of praise
and make me know Your judgments, Lord.

Verse 3:
When danger brings me close to death,
Your law stays with me night and day.
The wicked lay a snare for me,
yet from Your truth I will not stray.

Verse 4:
Your precepts are my heritage;
they make my heart and soul rejoice.
To keep Your statutes faithfully
shall ever be my willing choice.
