Let your love, God, shape my life with salvation, exactly as you promised;
Then I'll be able to stand up to mockery because I trusted your word.
Don't ever deprive me of truth, not ever--
your commands are what I depend on.
Oh, I'll guard with my life what you've revealed to me,
guard it now, guard it ever;
And I'll stride freely through wide open spaces
as I look for your truth and your wisdom;
Then I'll tell the world what I find, speak out boldly in public, unembarrassed.
I cherish your commands--oh how I love them!--
relishing every fragment of your counsel.
