Teach Me, O Lord, the Perfect Way
WINCHESTER OLD Psalm 119:33–37
Teach me, O Lord, the perfect way
of Thy precepts divine,
and to observe it to the end
I shall my heart incline.
Give understanding unto me,
that I Thy law obey;
with my whole heart shall I observe
Thy statutes night and day.
In Thy law’s path make me to go;
delight therein I find.
Unto Thy truth, and not to greed,
let my heart be inclined.
Turn Thou away my sight and eyes
from viewing vanity;
and in Thy good and holy way
be pleased to quicken me.
Confirm to me Thy gracious Word,
which I did gladly hear,
to me Thy servant, Lord, who am
devoted to Thy fear.
Turn Thou away my feared reproach;
for good Thy judgments be.
Lo, for Thy precepts I have longed;
in Thy truth quicken me.

Wrong hymn, right tune:
The current hymnal for this series is Hymns to the Living God, published by Religious Affections Ministries. This is such a good hymnal that I’m pretty sure I could happily post every hymn it contains, but I’ll be limiting selections to hymns I have never posted here before, especially those unfamiliar to me (of which there are many).
