Hymn/Song Information

I Mercy will and judgment sing O Lord




I Mercy will and judgment sing,
O Lord God, unto thee,
O let me understand the ways
that good and holy be.


Within my house I daily will
walk with an heart upright,
And I no kind of wicked thing
will set before my sight.


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.


Him I'll destroy that slandereth
his neighbor privily;
The lofty heart I will not bear,
nor him that looketh high.


My eyes shall be on them within
the land that faithful be:
In perfect way who walketh shall
be servant unto me.


I will no guileful person have
within my house to dwell;
And in my presence he shall not
remain that lies doth tell.


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.
