Representative Text

1 O Jehovah, hear my words,
And my meditation weigh;
Hear my cry, my king, my God,
For to Thee, O Lord, I’ll pray.

2 In the morning, Lord, my voice
Thou shalt hear in suppliant cries;
In the morning, Lord, to Thee
I will lift my waiting eyes.

3 Thou, Jehovah, art a God
Who in sin cannot delight;
Evil shall not dwell with Thee
Nor shall fools stand in Thy sight.

4 Evil-doers Thou dost hate,
Liars all destroyed shall be;
Men of blood and of deceit
Ever are abhorred by Thee.

5 But in Thy abundant grace
To Thy house will I draw near;
To Thy holy temple, Lord,
I will look, and bow in fear.

6 Lead me in Thy righteousness;
Evermore my steps maintain;
And because of watchful foes,
Make Thy way before me plain.

7 In their mouth there is no truth,
All their heart is full of wrong,
Like an open grave their throat;
And they flatter with their tongue.

8 Let transgressors be destroyed,
In their sins by Thee expelled;
By their counsels let them fall,
For against Thee they rebelled.

9 But let all in Thee who trust,
Ever glad and joyful be;
Let them joy who love Thy name,
Safely guarded, Lord, by Thee.

10 For Jehovah to the just
Will abundant blessings yield,
And with favor compass him
Safely round as with a shield.
