R. Lead me, Lord, in your justice.
1. You are no God who loves evil;
no sinner is your guest.
The boastful shall not stand their ground
before your face. (R.)
2. You hate all who do evil:
you destroy all who lie.
The deceitful and bloodthirsty man
the Lord detests. (R.)
3. But I through the greatness of your love
have access to your house.
I bow down before your holy temple,
filled with awe. (R.)
O praise the Lord, Jerusalem!
He sends out his word to the earth.
