Let everyone shout with Joy to the Lord
Come into His presence with song.
Let us worship in one accord
The One to whom we belong.
Enter His gates with thanksgiving,
Come into His courts with praise.
We find Him ever good and forgiving,
Merciful all of our days.
I will sing of Your perfect justice and love;
I will live with a heart to obey,
But this I ask of my God above:
When will You come to stay?
There is integrity in my home.
I reject those things that are vile.
I disapprove all hearts that roam;
I treasure all things worthwhile.
Some folks slander the innocent,
With eyes and heart so proud.
When I discern their evil intent,
I declare it clear and loud.
I look for faithfulness and love
In those who would be my friends.
Together we serve the Lord above
Faithful to the end.
I want no deceiver living with me;
No liars can be my friend,
For I seek truth and purity
From now until to the end.
Let us begin each day with resolve
To bring honor to our land.
May no wickedness be absolved
Nor evil allowed to stand.
