1 Lord, who shall come to Thee,
And stand before Thy face?
Who shall abide, a welcome guest,
Within Thy holy place?

2 The man of upright life,
Sincere in word and deed,
Who slanders neither friend nor foe,
Nor idle tales will heed.

3 Who honors godly men,
But scorns the false and file,
Who keeps his promised word to all,
Thought loss be his the while.

4 Who loves not usury,
Nor takes a base reward;
Unmoved forever he shall be,
And stand before the Lord.

The Psalter: with the responsive readings, 1912
