26. An Ideal Worshiper

1 Who, O Lord, shall dwell with Thee
In the temple of Thy grace?
Who Thy constant guest shall be
In Thy high and holy place?

2 He who walks in righteousness,
All his actions just and clear;
He whose words the truth express,
Spoken from a heart sincere.

3 He to whom does not belong
Tongue of malice or deceit,
Who will not his neighbor wrong,
Nor a slanderous tale repeat.

4 Who the wicked man will spurn,
Honor those that fear the Lord;
Nor will from his promise turn
Though but loss be his reward.

5 Who no usury will claim,
Nor with bribes pollute his hand;
He who thus his life shall frame
Shall unmoved forever stand.
