Psalter 271


Return to the Psalter Page

1. Of mercy and of justice
My thankful song shall be
O Lord, in joyful praises
My song shall rise to Thee.
Within my house I purpose
To walk in wisdom’s way;
O Lord, I need They presence;
How long wilt Thou delay?

2. On what is base and evil
I will not set my heart;
Transgressors’ ways abhorring,
With them I take no part.
No froward man or evil
Shall my companion be;
I will not suffer slander
Or pride or treachery.

3. The faithful and the upright
Shall minister to me;
The lying and deceitful
My favor shall not see
I will in daily judgment
All wickedness reward,
And cleanse from evildoers
The city of the Lord.
