Who? - Poem by Richard Merrell

Lord, who shall abide in Thy Tabernacle
Who shall dwell in Thine Holy Hill?
But he that walks uprightly
And worketh righteousness still.
Who speaks the truth in his heart
Backbites not with his tongue
Does no evil to his neighbour
Nor receives any accusation.
Who contems a vile person
Honours them that fear the Lord,
Who swears to his own hurt
And changes not his word.
Lends not money out for interest
Nor takes a bribe against the just -

The one that does these things oh Lord
Moves not, nor knows disgust.
