Psalm 101

St. Flavian (Tune 89).png
St. Flavian

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.
