View Lyrics
Judge me, O Lord, for I have walked
In my integrity.
And I have trusted in Thy name
And have not strayed from Thee.
Examine me, O Lord, and try;
Test Thou my heart and mind.
Thy mercies are before my eyes;
In truth I shall repine.

I sit not with deceitful men,
Nor walk with those who lie.
I hate the gath'ring of all who
With wickedness comply.
I wash my hands in innocence
And come before Thy throne.
I raise my voice, O Lord, in thanks
And make Thy wonders known.

I love, O Lord, Thy wondrous house
Where Thy great glory dwells.
O let not my soul be condemned
With sinful men to hell.
While wickedness has sealed their place,
I Lord, have sought Thy way.
Redeem me in Thy mercy, Lord,
And I shall bless Thy name.
