The Petition of a Good Conscience!

1. Be Thou my judge, O righteous Lord,
Try Thou my inmost heart;
I walk with steadfast trust in Thee,
Nor from Thy ways depart.

2. O search me, Lord, and prove me now;
Thy mercy I adore;
I choose Thy truth to be my guide,
And sinful ways abhor.

3. My hands I wash in innocence
And seek Thy altar, Lord,
That there I may with thankful voice
Thy wondrous works record.

4. The habitation of Thy house
Is ever my delight;
The place where dwells Thy glory, Lord,
Is lovely in my sight.

5. Let not the judgment fall on me
For evil men decreed,
For cruel men and violent,
Inspired by bribes and greed.

6. But I in my integrity
Will humbly walk with Thee;
O my Redeemer and my Lord,
Be merciful to me.

7. Redeemed by Thee, I stand secure
In peace and happiness;
And in the Church, among Thy saints,
Jehovah I will bless.

(The United Presbyterian Board Psalter – Psalm 26)

(Jimmy Hamilton aka The Street Preacher.
