The LORD is my | portion;*

I entreat your favor with | all my heart;*
  be gracious to me according to your | promise.
When I think | on my ways,*
  I turn my feet to your testi- | monies;
I hasten and do | not delay*
  to keep your com- | mandments.
The earth, O LORD, is full of your | steadfast love;*
  teach me your | statutes!
Glory be to the Father and | to the Son*
  and to the Holy | Spirit;
as it was in the be- | ginning,*
  is now, and will be forever. | Amen.

Your word is a lamp | to my feet*
  and a light | to my path.
