1 Lord, who's the happy man, that may
To thy blest courts repair;
And, while he bows before thy throne,
Shall find acceptance there?
2 'Tis he, whose ev'ry thought, and deed
By rules of virtue moves;
Whose gen'rous tongue disdains to speak
The thing his heart disproves:
3 Who never did a slander forge,
His neighbour's fame to wound;
Nor hearken to a false report,
By malice whisper'd round.
4 Who vice, in all its pomp and pow'r,
Can treat with just neglect;
And piety, though cloth'd in rags,
5 Who to his plighted vows and trust
Has ever firmly stood;
And, though he promise to his loss,
He makes his promise good:
6 Who seeks not by oppressive ways
His Treasure to employ;
Whom no rewards can ever bribe,
The guiltless to destroy.
7 The man, who, by this steady course,
Has happiness ensur'd,
When earth's foundation shakes, shall stand,
By Providence secur'd.Source: A Collection of Psalms and Hymns for Publick Worship #P.XXXV
