Isaac Watts, 1674-1748
Judge me, O Lord, and prove my ways,|
And try my reins, and try my heart
My faith upon thy promise stays,
Nor from thy law my feet depart.
2. I hate to walk, I hate to sit,
3. Amongst thy saints will I appear|
With frauds well washed in innocence;
But when I stand before thy bar,
The blood of Christ is my defence.
4. I love thy habitation, Lord,
5. Let not my soul be joined at last|
With men of treachery and blood,
Since I my days on earth have passed
Among the saints, and near my God.
