othat the Lord

The Gulf States LWML Convention was back in April.  The “giant Psalm”, Psalm 119:113 was the theme verse for “Direct my Footsteps According to Your Word”.    This Psalm has been called the Psalm of the Word.  One of the best commentaries on the Psalm and this verse is Isaac Watts hymn, “O That the Lord Would Guide My Ways”.

Oh, that the Lord Would Guide My Ways
By: Isaac Watts

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!

Order my footsteps by your Word
And make my heart sincere;
Let sin have no dominion, Lord,
But keep my conscience clear.

Assist my soul, too apt to stray,
A stricter watch to keep;
If ever I for get your way,
Restore your wandering sheep.

Make me to walk in your commands,
A most delightful road;
Nor let my head or heart or hands
Offend against my god.
