148. How Shall the Young Direct Their Way?

1 How shall the young direct their way?
What light shall be their perfect guide?
Your Word, O Lord, will safely lead,
If in its wisdom they confide.
Sincerely I have sought you, Lord,
O let me not from you depart;
To know your will and keep from sin
Your Word I cherish in my heart.

2 O blessed Lord, teach me our law,
Your righteous judgments I declare;
Your testimonies make me glad,
For they are wealth beyond compare.
Upon tyour precepts and your ways
My heart will meditate with awe;
Your Word shall be my chief delight,
And I will not forget your law.
