Judge me, O Lord, with upright heart

Judge me, O Lord, with upright heart

Author: John Barnard
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Judge me, O Lord; with upright heart;
I've walked, and still abide:
My trust I've placéd in the Lord,
And will not turn aside.
2. Search me, O God, my reins, and heart,
Try, and make thorough proof;
3. I've set thy grace before mine eyes,
And walked in thy truth.

4. I have not with vain persons sat;
Nor with dissemblers gone.
5. I hate the crowds that practice ill;
The wicked's presence shun.
6. In innocence I'll wash my hands;
And to thy courts repair:
7. That I may all thy wondrous works,
With thankful voice declare.

8. To visit, Lord, thy sacred house,
Has been my great delight;
That holy tabernacle, where
Thy glory shines so bright.
9. With sinners let me not be joined,
Nor with the bloody tribes;
10. Whose hands in mischief are employed,
Their right hand's full of bribes.

11. For I will walk in righteousness;
In mercy, me redeem.
12. My foot stands right; among thy saints,
Thy praise shall be my theme.
