Full Text

1 The trespass of the wicked man
Most plainly testifies
That fear of God's most holy Name
Is not before his eyes.

2 He cherishes the empty hope,
Although his sin be great,
It never shall be brought to light
And viewed with righteous hate.

3 The words he utters with his mouth
Are wickedness and lies;
He keeps himself from doing good,
And ceases to be wise.

4 While on his bed his thought he gives
To planning wickedness;
He sets himself in evil ways,
he shuns not to transgress.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
