PSALM 119:9-16
METER:  LMD (88 88 D)
SUGGESTED TUNE:  HE LEADETH ME
This the meter of such hymns as "He Leadeth Me."

1.  How can the young keep their ways pure?
    When they guard them all through your word.
    I seek you with my whole heart, Lord;
    Don't let me stray from what you teach.
    I've laid your word up in my heart,
    That I might not a-gainst you sin.
    Bless-ed are you, O Lord my God;
    Teach me your stat-utes and your ways.
2.  With my own lips I do de-clare
    All of the things that you com-mand.
    All of your laws are my de-light
    As much as in the whole world's wealth.
    On your pre-cepts I'll med-i-tate,
    And fix my eyes up-on your ways.
    I will de-light in all your laws;
    I nev-er will for-get your word.
