How shall the young direct their way?
What light shall be their perfect guide?
Thy Word, O Lord, will safely lead,
If in its wisdom they confide.
Sincerely I have sought thee, Lord,
O let me not from thee depart;
To know thy will and keep from sin
Thy Word I cherish in my heart.
O blessed Lord, teach me thy law,
Thy righteous judgments I declare;
Thy testimonies make me glad,
For they are wealth beyond compare.
Upon thy precepts and thy ways
My heart will meditate with awe;
Thy Word shall be my chief delight,
And I will not forget thy law.
" Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.
 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments.
 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
 Blessed art thou, O LORD: teach me thy statutes.
 With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.
 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.
 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
 I will delight myself in thy statutes: I will not forget thy word." Psalm 119:9-16
