Of loyalty and justice I will sing;
study the ways in which the blameless live;
Keep my eyes from any baseless thing
Walk with integrity and all forgive.
Work of the faithless ones i will disdain;
it shall not cling and not a speck remain.
Nothing of evil will indwell my heart.
Nor will perversity have any part.
Dealers in slander will not catch my ear.
Sneerers and mockers, these may not draw near.
Faithful, blameless folks, who e’re you be,
Come and serve the Lord along with me.
Ev’ryone faithful finds a welcome here.
Liars, deceivers, have the boot to fear.
Out from nearness they will soon be sent.
Only to enter back when they repent.
