Full Text

1 Who in thy glorious temple, Lord, shall dwell,
And who shall rest upon thy holy hill?
2 E'en he, who holds simplicity of heart.
And from thy righteous judgments dreads to part;
Whose faithful tongue, indignant of a lie,
Wounds not his neighbour's peace with calumny;
Whose thoughts no mischief 'gainst a foe intend;
Who vents no killing slander 'gainst a friend:
4 Who shuns the wicked, and detests their ways;
But, honours him, that heav'ns high will obeys;
Who'll to the indigent his help afford,
And lose his int'rest, ere he'll break his word.
5 Who with a modest income is content,
Nor takes reward against the innocent;
By acts like these, who can his duty prove,
Shall live for ever with his God above.
