I underlined my favorite verses from Psalm 119 (Aleph - Samekh) then wrote them down here.
I think they would be good lyrics for a Christian song:

Blessed are they who keep his statues and seek him with all their heart.
I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.
I am a stranger on earth; do not hide your commands from me.
I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws.
Turn my heart toward your statues and not toward selfish gain.
I lift up my hands to your commands which I love and I meditate on your decrees.
My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.
I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes.
Teach me knowledge and good judgement, for I believe in your commands.
May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.
My soul faints with longing for your salvation, but I have put my hope in your word.
Your word, O LORD, is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.
How sweet are your words to my taste, sweeter than honey to my mouth!
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.

...oops, am sorry. I meant, Craig, I like your song and I love that Psalm esp the answers to the question "How can a young man keep his way pure?" I pray to have this much desire for God's word. It will guard so much of my head and heart. So thanks again for all of you who have been "living according to God's word; seeking God w/ all heart; hiding his word and recounting/memorizing God's word; joyfully meditates and consider God's ways and delighting in his decrees". Thank you God for the bible! It protects us from so much junk we all don't have to go through. I pray we can all have this heart. love you guys!
