Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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.
