Light on Feet

Psalm 119: 105 - 112

105   Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.
106   I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.
107   I have suffered much; preserve my life, Lord, according to your word.
108   Accept, Lord, the willing praise of my mouth, and teach me your laws.
109   Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget your law.
110   The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from your precepts.
111   Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart.
112   My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end.[
