To You, O Lord

I'm going to sing this at the 5 PM (central time) vigil Mass today.  It has been my prayer all week.

To you, O Lord, I lift my soul, to you, I lift my soul.
Lord, make me know your ways, 
teach me your paths and keep me in the way of your truth,
for you are God, my Savior.
To you, O Lord, I lift my soul, to you, I lift my soul.
For the Lord is good and righteous, 
revealing his way to those who seek him,
gently leading the poor and the humble.
To you, O Lord, I lift my soul, to you, I lift my soul.
To the ones who seek the Lord,
who look to his word, who live his love,
he will always be near, he will show them his mercy.
To you, O Lord, I lift my soul, to you, I lift my soul.
