1 Your word sheds light upon my path;
a shining light, it guides my feet.
Your righteous judgments to observe,
my solemn vow I now repeat.
2 In my distress I plead with you;
send help according to your word.
Accept my sacrifice of praise
And make me know your judgments, LORD.
3 In danger brings me close to death,
your law stays with me night and day.
The wicked lay a snare for me,
yet from your truth I will not stray.
4 Your precepts are my heritage;
they make my heart and soul rejoice.
To keep your statutes faithfully
shall ever be my willing choice.
