Judge me, O Lord; for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the Lord; therefore I shall not slide. Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.@Psalm 26:1–2

Judge mine integrity,
The righteous judge Thou art;
Prove me, O Lord, examine me,
And try my inmost heart.

Thy mercy and Thy grace
I love to contemplate;
Thy paths of truth my footsteps trace,
And wicked men I hate.

Clean hands, O Lord, I raise
As I Thy altars seek,
Where I may sing in grateful praise,
And of Thy wonders speak.

O Lord, Thy house I love,
Where glory dwells within;
O keep my heart secure above
All fellowship with sin.

Redeeming love and grace
Bestow, O Lord, on me;
Among Thy saints how blest my place
Forever praising Thee.
