Psalm 119 part 4

 Instruction from scripture.
9 How shall the young secure their hearts, And guard their lives from sin? Thy word the choicest rules imparts To keep the conscience clean.
130 When once it enters to the mind, It spreads such light abroad, The meanest souls instruction find, And raise their thoughts to God.
105 'Tis like the sun, a heav'nly light, That guides us all the day; And through the dangers of the night, A lamp to lead our way.
99,100 The men that keep thy law with care, And meditate thy word, Grow wiser than their teachers are, And better know the Lord.
104,113 Thy precepts make me truly wise: I hate the sinner's road; I hate my own vain thoughts that rise, But love thy law, my God.
89-91 [The starry heavens thy rule obey, The earth maintains her place; And these thy servants night and day Thy skill and power express.
But still thy law and gospel, Lord, Have lessons more divine; Not earth stands firmer than thy word, Nor stars so nobly shine.
] ver.
160,140,9,116 Thy word is everlasting truth, How pure is every page! That holy book shall guide our youth, And well support our age.
