Your word is a lamp to my feet, Lord.
Your word is a light to my path. 
Though the world around me tosses and tumbles,
I hold fast to you. 
Though I have doubts and worries and I wonder,
I hold fast to you. 
Though my heart hurts, my spirit aches, and I lose my way,
I hold fast to you. 
Though I encounter wickedness and hate seemingly around every corner,
I hold fast to you. 
Your stories and your songs, O Lord-
They comfort me. 
Your will and your way, O Lord-
They nudge me along. 
Your presence and your promise, O Lord-
They give me hope. 
Your world is my heritage and my heart.
And I will turn toward you forever. 
I will hold fast to you.
And I will sing praises to your name!

-Adapted from Psalm 119:105-112.
