Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. 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.

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.
