1 I Mercy will and judgment sing,
Lord, I will sing to thee.
2 I'll wisely do in perfect way
When thou shalt come to me;
I will in midst of my house walk
In my heart's uprightness
3 I will not set before mine eyes
The work of wickedness.
I hate their work who turn aside,
It shall not cleave me to.
4 The froward heart from me shall part,
None evil will I know
5 I'll cut him off that slandereth
His neighbour privily;
I cannot bear the proud in heart,
Nor him that looketh high.
6 Upon the faithful in the land
Mine eyes shall be that they
May dwell with me, he shall me serve
Who walks in perfect way.
7 He that a worker is of guile
In my house shall not dwell
Before me settled shall not be
The man who lyes doth tell.
8 Yea all the wicked of the land
Early destroy will I:
To cut off from God's city all
Who work iniquity.
