You're blessed when you stay on course,
walking steadily on the road revealed by Yahweh.
You're blessed when you follow his directions,
doing your best to find him.
That's right - you don't go off on your own;
you walk straight along the road he set.
You, Yahweh, prescribed the right way to live;
now you expect us to live it.
Oh, that my steps might be steady,
keeping to the course you set;
Then I'd never have any regrets
in comparing my life with your counsel.
portions of Psalm 119, from the Message
