Psalm 101 N.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 I Mercy will and judgment sing, O Lord God, unto thee, O let me understand the ways that good and holy be.
2 Within my house I daily will walk with an heart upright, And I no kind of wicked thing will set before my sight.
3 I hate their works that fall away, they shall not cleave to me; From me shall go the froward heart, no evil will I see.
4 Him I'll destroy that slandereth his neighbor privily; The lofty heart I will not bear, nor him that looketh high.
5 My eyes shall be on them within the land that faithful be: In perfect way who walketh shall be servant unto me.
6 I will no guileful person have within my house to dwell; And in my presence he shall not remain that lies doth tell.
7 Betimes I will destroy e'en all the wicked of the land, That I may from God's city cut the wicked worker's hand.
