You Yourself watch over my steps and paths day and night.

 “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way” (Psalm 37:23)
“A man’s heart plans his way, But the Lord directs his steps” (Pro 16:9)

You stand vigil to take care of me and guard my ways. 

He who keeps you will not slumber” (Psalm 121:3)
“For His eyes are on the ways of man, And He sees all his steps” (Job 34;21)

Let us, therefore, cling to You

Yield yourselves to the Lord; and enter His sanctuary” (2Chr 30:8)
