475. C. M. Watts. |O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes.|
1 O that the Lord would guide my ways
To keep his statutes still!
O that my God would grant me grace
To know and do his will!
2 O send thy Spirit down to write
Thy law upon my heart!
Nor let my tongue indulge deceit,
Nor act the liar's part.
3 Order my footsteps by thy word,
And make my heart sincere;
Let sin have no dominion, Lord,
But keep my conscience clear.
4 Make me to walk in thy commands, --
'Tis a delightful road;
Nor let my head, or heart, or hands,
Offend against my God.
