Psalm 25: Who You Are

My southern cross,
My northern star,
Lord, You my guide and captain are,
Through gain or loss,
Through weal or woe,
I will surrender You my soul.

In You I trust,
You will not fail,
When foe-men fear I will not pale.
For all unjust,
Will share their shame:
The treacherous, two-tongued, and vain.

Show me Your ways,
Reveal Your paths!
That I may follow first and last.
Let me not stray,
But travel true,
That all my deeds would point to You.

Mercy and truth,
Remember, please!
For You encompass all of these.
My sinful youth,
Forget and cleanse,
For Your name’s sake blot out my sins.

For God is right,
With good arrayed,
And sinners He will teach His ways.
He humble guides,
With justice fills,
On them He will reveal His will.

So for Your name,
For who You are,
My savior – sacrificed and scarred,
Lord, take my shame,
Remove my sin,
And make me pure and whole again.
