"Oh, that the Lord Would Guide My Ways" by Isaac Watts, 1674-1748 Text From: THE HANDBOOK TO THE LUTHERAN HYMNAL (St. Louis: Concordia Publishing House, 1942) p. 299 1. Oh, that the Lord would guide my ways To keep His statutes still! Oh, that my God would grant me grace To know and do His will! 2. Order my footsteps by Thy Word And make my heart sincere; Let sin have no dominion, Lord, But keep my conscience clear. 3. Assist my soul, too apt to stray, A stricter watch to keep; And should I e'er forget Thy way, Restore Thy wandering sheep. 4. Make me to walk in Thy commands,-- 'Tis a delightful road,-- Nor let my head or heart or hands Offend against my God.This text was converted to ascii format for Project Wittenberg by Debbie Harris and is in the public domain.
