Lord, may you hear my cry. Give me understanding, just as you said you would.
May you hear my prayer. Save me, just as you promised.
May my lips pour out praise to you, because you teach me your orders.
May my tongue sing about your word, because all of your commands are right.
May your hand be ready to help me, because I have chosen to obey your rules.
Lord, I long for you to save me. I take delight in your law.
Let me live so that I can praise you. May your laws keep me going.
Like a lost sheep, I've gone down the wrong path. Come and look for me, because I haven't forgotten to obey your commands.
