PSALM 119:105-112
METER:  CM (86 86)
This is the meter for such hymns as "O God, Our Help in Ages Past."

1.  Your word's a lamp un-to my feet,
    And light un-to my path.
    I've made a sol-emn prom-ise that
    I'll keep your right-eous ways.
2.  I am af-flict-ed, Lord, save me
    Ac-cord-ing to your word.
    Ac-cept my of-fer-ings of praise
    And teach me all your ways.
3.  My life is ever per-il-ous,
    But I up-hold your laws;
    The wick-ed set a trap for me,
    Yet I won't stray from them.
4.  Your teach-ings are for-ev-er mine,
    They give my heart great joy.
    I am re-solved to keep your laws
    Un-til the day I die.
