Our God is Good and Upright
Words: Psalm 25:8-14, from The Scottish Psalter of 1650
(If your computer has sound but the music is not playing, click here.)
1. Our God is good and upright the way he'll sinners show. The meek in judgment he will guide, and make his paths to know. The whole paths of the Lord are truth and mercy sure, To those that do his cov'nant keep, and testimonies pure.
2. Now, for thine own name's sake, O Lord, I thee entreat To pardon mine iniquity; for it is very great. What man is he that fears the Lord, and doth him serve? *** Him shall he teach of his own way the way he should observe.
3. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his posterity Shall flourish still, and of the earth inheritors shall be. With those that fear him is the secret of the Lord; The knowledge of his covenant He will to them afford.
