101Psalm 101CM
LORD, when I lift my voice to Thee,
    To Whom all praise belongs,
Thy justice and Thy love shall be
    The subject of my songs.
2  Let wisdom o’er my heart preside,
    To lead my steps aright,
And make Thy perfect law my guide,
    Thy service my delight.
3  All sinful ways I will abhor,
    All evil men forsake;
And only those who love Thy law
    My chief companions make.
4  Lord! that I may not go astray,
    Thy constant grace impart;
And ever come to point my way,
    And seal my roving heart.
William Hiley Bathurst, 1796-1877
