PSALM 119:33-40
METER:  CMD (86 86 D)
This is the meter for such hymns as "There Is a Fountain Filed with Blood."

1.  Teach me the way of your laws, Lord;
    I'll keep them to the end.
    Give in-sight to me, that I may
    Whole-heart-ed-ly o-bey.
    Lead me in your com-mand-ments' path,
    For in them I de-light.
    In-cline my heart un-to your word,
    And not to my own gain.
2.  Let me not look at van-i-ties;
    Give me life in your ways.
    Con-firm to me your prom-ise sure,
    For all those who fear you.
    Turn back the re-proach which I dread;
    Your ord-'nanc-es are good.
    Lo, for your pre-cepts do I long;
    In just-ice give me life.
