Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 Who, O Lord, shall dwell with Thee
In the temple of Thy grace?
Who Thy constant guest shall be
In Thy high and holy place?

2 He who walks in righteousness,
All his actions just and clear;
He whose words the truth express,
Spoken from a heart sincere.

3 He to whom does not belong
Tongue of malice or deceit,
Who will not his neighbor wrong,
Nor a slanderous tale repeat.

4 Who the wicked man will spurn,
Honor those that fear the Lord;
Nor will from his promise turn
Though but loss be his reward.

5 Who no usury will claim,
Nor with bribes pollute his hand;
He who thus his life shall frame
Shall unmoved forever stand.
