Thy Word is a lamp to my feet,
A light to my path al­way,
To guide and to save me from sin,
And show me the heav’n­ly way.


Thy Word have I hid in my heart,
That I might not sin against Thee;
That I might not sin, that I might not sin,
Thy Word have I hid in my heart.

Forever, O Lord, is Thy Word
Established and fixed on high;
Thy faith­ful­ness un­to all men
Abideth for­ev­er nigh.


At morn­ing, at noon, and at night
I ev­er will give Thee praise;
For Thou art my por­tion, O Lord,
And shall be through all my days!


Thro’ Him whom Thy Word hath fore­told,
The Sav­ior and Mor­ning Star,
Salvation and peace have been brought
To those who have strayed afar.
