Full Text

1 I mercy will and judgment sing,
Lord, I will sing to thee.
2 With wisdom in a perfect way
shall my behaviour be.

O when, in kindness unto me,
wilt thou be pleas’d to come?
I with a perfect heart will walk
within my house at home.

3 I will endure no wicked thing
before mine eyes to be:
I hate their work that turn aside,
it shall not cleave to me.

4 A stubborn and a froward heart
depart quite from me shall;
A person giv’n to wickedness
I will not know at all.

5 I’ll cut him off that slandereth
his neighbour privily:
The haughty heart I will not bear,
nor him that looketh high.

6 Upon the faithful of the land
mine eyes shall be, that they
May dwell with me: he shall me serve
that walks in perfect way.

7 Who of deceit a worker is
in my house shall not dwell;
And in my presence shall he not
remain that lies doth tell.

8 Yea, all the wicked of the land
early destroy will I;
All from God’s city to cut off
that work iniquity.
