9 How shall the young preserve their ways
From all pollution free?
By making still their course of life
With thy commands agree.

10 With hearty zeal for thee I seek
To thee for succour pray;
O suffer not my careless steps
From thy right paths to stray.

11 Safe in my heart, and closely hid,
Thy word, my treasure lies;
To succour me with timely aid,
When sinful thoughts arise.

12 Secur'd by that, my grateful soul
Shall ever bless thy name;
O teach me than by thy just laws
My future life to frame.

13 My lips, unlock'd by pious zeal,
To others have declar'd
How well the judgments of thy mouth
Deserve our best regard.

14 Whilst in the way of thy commands
More solid joy I found,
Than had I been with vast increase
Of envy'd riches crown'd.

15 Therefore thy just and upright laws
Shall always fill my mind;
And those sound rules, which thou prescirb'st
All due respect shall find.

16 To keep thy statutes undefac'd
Shall be my constant joy;
The strict remembrance of thy word
Shall all my thoughts employ.
