PSALM 119:9-16
METER:  LMD (88 88 D)
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.
