1.  Your laws are won-der-ful, O Lord;
    There-fore my soul keeps them.
    Your words' un-fold-ing gives forth light;
    The sim-ple un-der-stand.
2.  With open mouth I pant, O Lord;
    For your laws I do yearn.
    Turn to me and show me your grace,
    As to all who love you.
3.  You prom-ised you would stead-y me;
    Let me not turn to sin.
    Re-deem me from those who op-press,
    That I may keep your laws.
4.  Make your face shine on me, O Lord,
    And teach me all your ways.
    My eyes shed streams of tears, O Lord,
    When your law is not kept.
