Psalter 26


Return to the PsalterĀ 

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
Tho’ 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.
