WORDS OF LIFE
1 Listen to my words, Lord, consider my lament.
2 Hear my cry for help, my King and my God, for to you I pray.
3 In the morning, Lord, you hear my voice; In the morning I lay my requests before you
and wait expectantly.
4 For you are not a God who is pleased with wickedness;
With you, evil people are not welcome.
5 The arrogant cannot stand in your presence.
You hate all who do wrong; 6 You destroy those who tell lies.
The bloodthirsty and deceitful you, Lord, detest.
7 But I, by your great love, can come into your house;
In reverence I bow down toward your holy temple.
8 Lead me, Lord, in your righteousness because of my enemies—
make your way straight before me.
— Psalm 5: 1-8
