O that the Lord would guide my ways To keep His statutes still! O that my God would grant me grace To know and do His will! Order my footsteps by Thy word, And make my heart sincere; Let sin have no dominion, Lord, But keep my conscience clear. Assist my soul, too apt to stray, A stricter watch to keep. If ever I forget Your way, Restore Thy wandering sheep. Make me to walk in Thy commands, 'Tis a delightful road; Nor let my head, or heart, or hands, Offend against my God.
