Thou art my portion, O my God;
      Soon as I know thy way,

Ver. 57,60

Thou art my portion, O my God;
      Soon as I know thy way,
My heart makes haste t’ obey thy word,
      And suffers no delay.

Ver. 30,14

I choose the path of heav’nly truth,
      And glory in my choice;
Not all the riches of the earth
      Could make me so rejoice.

The testimonies of thy grace
      I set before my eyes;
Thence I derive my daily strength,
      And there my comfort lies.

Ver. 59

If once I wander from thy path,
      I think upon my ways,
Then turn my feet to thy commands,
      And trust thy pard’ning grace.

Ver. 94,114

Now I am thine, for ever thine,
      O save thy servant, Lord;
Thou art my shield, my hiding-place;
      My hope is in thy word.

Ver. 112

Thou hast inclined this heart of mine
      Thy statutes to fulfil;
And thus, till mortal life shall end,
      Would I perform thy will.

~ Isaac Watts
