1. Lord, I will sing with rapturous rejoicing,
Thy justice and Thy loving kindness voicing;
A joyful psalm, Jehovah, I will raise
Unto Thy praise.
2. I’ll wisely tread the pathway of perfection;
When wilt Thou come, O Lord, for my direction?
I’ll walk within my house with perfect heart,
From sin apart.
3. No wicked thing or slanderous accusation
Shall stand before mine eyes with approbation;
No hateful doings of apostasy
Shall cleave to me.
4. The froward heart will I not suffer near me,
All evil things will I abhor sincerely;
All who in secret at their neighbors scoff
Will I cut off.
