View Lyrics
O Jehovah, hear my words,
heed the groaning of my soul;
hear my cry, my King, my God,
let my prayer to You be known.
With the morning light, O Lord,
You shall hear my voice arise,
and expectant, I will bring
prayer as morning sacrifice.

You, Jehovah, are a God
who will not delight in sin;
evil cannot dwell with You,
nor the proud, Your favor win.
Evildoers you despise,
lying tongues You will defeat;
God abhors the man who loves
violent ways and base deceit.

In the fullness of Your grace
to Your house I will repair;
bowing towards Your holy place,
in Your fear I worship there.
Lead me in Your righteousness,
let my foes assail in vain;
lest my feet be turned aside,
make Your way before me plain.

False and faithless are my foes,
in their mouth no truth is found;
deadly are the words they speak,
all their thoughts with sin abound.
Cause, O God, their plans to fail,
hold them guilty in Your sight;
for against Your holy law
they have set themselves to fight.

Let the ones that trust Your care
shout for joy at Your command;
let them sing who love Your name,
safely guarded by Your hand.
For a blessing from Your throne
to the righteous You will yield;
You will compass him around
with Your favor as a shield.
