        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.
