URC Daily Devotion 16th June 2019

1 I’ll praise your love and justice, LORD;
I’ll praise you cheerfully.
2 I’ll strive to lead a blameless life—
when will you come to me?

Within my home the life I lead
will show a blameless heart.
3 My eyes will view no worthless thing;
from sin I will depart.

I hate what faithless people do;
it shall not cling to me.
4 All wicked people I’ll avoid;
from evil I’ll stay free.

5 I’ll put to silence everyone
who slanders secretly;
I will not tolerate the proud
who act so haughtily.

6 My eyes are on the faithful ones,
that they may dwell with me;
Whoever lives a blameless life
will serve me constantly.

7 No one who practises deceit
will dwell within my home;
Nor will the one whose words are false
before me ever come.

8 Each morning I will silence all
who wicked deeds have done;
I’ll cleanse the city of the LORD
of every evil one.

The editors of Sing Psalms suggest the tune York for this Psalm which you can hear here, or the tune Moravia (here) or the tune St James (here).
