12100. Of Justice And Of Grace I Sing

1 O Justice and of grace I sing,
And pay my God my vows;
Thy grace and justice, heav’nly King,
Teach me to rule my house.

2 Now to my tent, O God, repair,
And make thy servant wise;
I’ll suffer nothing near me there
That shall offend Thine eyes.

3 The man that doth his neighbor wrong
By falsehood or by force,
The scornful eye, the slanderous tongue,
I’ll thrust them from my doors.

4 I’ll seek the faithful and the just,
And will their help enjoy;
These are the friends that I shall trust,
The servants I’ll employ.

5 The wretch that deals in sly deceit
I’ll not endure a night;
The liar’s tongue I ever hate,
And banish from my sight.

6 I’ll purge my family around
And make the wicked flee,
So shall my house be ever found
A dwelling fit for Thee.
