Declared to You my wayward steps
You answered, teach me Your precepts.
Describe and make me understand
Your precepts, ways, and wonders grand.
Depression, grief, eat at my soul
through Your word, strengthen, make me whole.
Deceitful ways keep far from me
and teach me Your law graciously.
Determined to walk faithfully
I’ve set Your judgments before me.
Do not let me face disgrace
Lord, Your statutes I embrace
Deftly down Your paths I stride
so much insight You’ve supplied.
