1 Who shall inhabit in thy hill,
O God of holiness?
Whom will the Lord admit to dwell
So near his throne of grace.
2 The man that walks in pious ways,
And works with righteous hands;
That trusts his Maker’s promis'd grace,
And follows his commands.
3 He speaks the meaning of his heart,
Nor slanders with his tongue;
Will scarce believe an ill report,
Nor do his neighbour wrong.
4 The wealthy sinner he contemns,
Loves all that fear the Lord;
And tho' to his own hurt he swears,
Still he performs his word.
5 His hands disdain a golden bribe,
And never wrong the poor;
This man shall dwell with God on earth,
And find his heav’n secure.
