I'll Turn my Steps (to the altar of God)

This is a hymn about discipleship and repentance.   It appears to be at least partially based on Psalm 43.

Videos on YouTube suggest that it is mainly known in India, and one of them attributes the song to Indian Roman Catholic priest, musician, liturgist and composer, Aniceto Nazareth (1938-2021).

It seems that the original words are "I will turn my steps .." but this is usually shortened to "I'll turn my steps" when the hymn is sung.

Lyrics

Chorus:
I’ll turn my steps to the altar of God,
I’ll turn my steps to the gladness of my life.

Show your justice in pleading my cause,
let me walk in the way of your laws.

Lead me on with your power and strength
and my courage will never be spent.

Fill my heart with your truth and your light
as I enter with joy in your sight.

Holy praises to God will I sing,
I will trust and will hope in my King

Glory be to the Father and Son
And the Spirit while ages are run.

See more ...


KEEP IN CASE ORIGINAL IS REMOVED, BUT DO NOT DISPLAY Chorus:
I’ll turn my steps to the altar of God,
I’ll turn my steps to the gladness of my life.

Show your justice in pleading my cause,
let me walk in the way of your laws.

Lead me on with your power and strength
and my courage will never be spent.

Fill my heart with your truth and your light
as I enter with joy in your sight.

Holy praises to God will I sing,
I will trust and will hope in my King

Glory be to the Father and Son
And the Spirit while ages are run.
