Thy word O Lord, I love to keep
To live and meditate;
It shows my sin, it makes me weep,
And all transgression hate.
Thy word O Lord, it breaks my heart,
It causes me to yearn;
Something, Someone, a brand new start,
A way I cannot earn.
Thy word O Lord, it is my hope,
My peace, my joy, my all;
It points me to the Christ of God,
My Saviour, all in all.
Thy word O Lord, leads to the Lamb,
The blood shed on the cross;
To guilt removed, to sin destroyed,
I cannot suffer loss.
Thy word O Lord, my lamp shall be,
Thou art the Holy Oil;
Thy light increase, my love to Thee,
To rest from all my toil.
Thy word O Lord, will lead me home,
And never shall it fail;
It’s truth, it’s light, it’s always right,
That’s why I will prevail.
