Who shall inhabit in thy hill, O God of holiness?
Who shall inhabit in thy hill, O God of holiness? Whom will the Lord admit to dwell So near his throne of grace?
The man that walks in pious ways, And works with righteous hands; That trusts his Maker's promises, And follows his commands.
He speaks the meaning of his heart, Nor slanders with his tongue; Will scarce believe an ill report, Nor do his neighbor wrong.
The wealthy sinner he contemns, Loves all that fear the Lord; And though to his own hurt he swears, Still he performs his word.
His hands disdain a golden bribe, And never gripe the poor: This man shall dwell with God on earth, And find his heav'n secure.
~ Isaac Watts
