1 Grace and truth shall mark the way
Where the Lord His own will lead,
If His word they still obey
And His testimonies heed.
2 For Thy Name's sake hear Thou me,
For Thy mercy, Lord, I wait;
Pardon my iniquity,
For my sin is very great.
3 He who walks in godly fear
In the path of truth shall go;
Peace shall be his portion here,
And his sons all good shall know.
4 They that fear and love the Lord
Shall Jehovah's friendship know;
He will grace to them accord,
And His faithful covenant show.
5 Ever are my longing eyes
On the Lord, whose watchful care,
When by foes their plts devise,
Keeps my feet from every snare.
6 Turn to me, Thy grace impart,
I am desolate indeed;
Gret the troubles of my heart;
Save Thou me, O Lord, I plead.
7 Look on mine afflicted state,
Freely all my sins forgive;
Mark my foes, their cruel hate;
Keep my soul and let me live.
8 Shame me not; I hide in thee;
Truth and right preserve me still;
Mark Thy people, Lord my God, ,
Save Thou them from ever ill.
