So why not seek peace in simple ways?
Teach me your ways
that I may follow them faithfully.
Give me discernment
that I may observe your law
and keep it with all my heart.
Guide me in the path of your commands,
for there is my delight.
Incline my heart to your will
and not to love of gain.
Protect me from all that is evil;
by your word, give me life.
To the one who holds you in awe,
keep the promise you have made.
In your great kindness
turn away the insults that I fear.
I long for your precepts;
in your justice, give me life.
