in the turmoil of my failings,
in the tangle of my sin,

strengthen me to watch and pray.

' AlephBlessed are they whose ways are blameless,
who walk according to the law of the LORD. 2
Blessed are they who keep his statutes
and seek him with all their heart.
3 They do nothing wrong;
they walk in his ways.
4 You have laid down precepts
that are to be fully obeyed.
5 Oh, that my ways were steadfast
in obeying your decrees!
6 Then I would not be put to shame
when I consider all your commands.
7 I will praise you with an upright heart
as I learn your righteous laws.
8 I will obey your decrees;
do not utterly forsake me.
