Thy Word is a light to my way;
It shines in my soul like a star by night,
And comforts and cheers me by day.

My treasure, my hope, and my stay;
Each promise recorded delights my soul,
And brightens each step of my way.

Thy Word is a lamp to my feet, O Lord,
And, trusting in Thee as my all,
Whatever of evil may cross my path,
I never, no, never can fall.

For all the rich blessings its truth has brought,
The praises will I give unto Thee.
