To you, O Lord, I lift my soul,
in you, O God, I trust;
let all vain thoughts be put to shame,
and languish in the dust.
Make me to know your paths, O God,
and lead me in your way;
to learn your saving truth my heart
shall meditate each day.
The Lord is goodness, truth and love,
God's path the saints have trod;
and children of the covenant
still walk beside their God.
Be mindful of your mercy, Lord,
your love from ages past;
forgive the weakness of my youth
and bring me home at last.
