Psalm 119:11
"Thy word have I hid in mine heart,

divider

          Thy Word is a lamp to my feet,
          A light to my path alway,
          To guide and to save me from sin,
          And show me the heav'nly way.

            Chorus
            Thy Word have I hid in my heart,
            That I might not sin against Thee;
            That I might not sin, that I might not sin,
            Thy Word have I hid in my heart.

          Forever, O Lord, is Thy Word,
          Established and fixed on high;
          Thy faithfulness unto all men,
          Abideth forever nigh.

            Chorus
            Thy Word have I hid in my heart,
            That I might not sin against Thee;
            That I might not sin, that I might not sin,
            Thy Word have I hid in my heart.

          At morning, at noon, and at night,
          I ever will give Thee praise;
          For Thou art my portion, O Lord,
          And shall be thru all my days!

            Chorus
            Thy Word have I hid in my heart,
            That I might not sin against Thee;
            That I might not sin, that I might not sin,
            Thy Word have I hid in my heart.

          Thru Him whom Thy Word hath foretold,
          The Savior and Morning Star,
          Salvation and peace have been brought,
          To those who have strayed afar.

            Chorus
            Thy Word have I hid in my heart,
            That I might not sin against Thee;
            That I might not sin, that I might not sin,
            Thy Word have I hid in my heart.
