Your word is a lamp to guide me
and a light for my path.
I will keep my solemn promise
to obey your just instructions.
Accept my prayer of thanks, O Lord
and teach me your commands.
I am always ready to risk my life;
I have not forgotten your laws.
Your commandments are my
they are my joy of my heart.
I have decided to obey your laws
until the day I die.
— Psalms 119
