Like a Rock

Minister: Lift up your hearts!
Congregation: We lift them up to the Lord!

Lord, who can live with You?
Who can dwell within Your tent?
Who can live upon Your holy hill?

The one who walks straight up,
The one who does the just and right,
The one speaks the truth within.

He does not backbite with his tongue,
He does no evil to his friend,
He never takes reproach in hand
Against his neighbor or his friend.

He looks on the vile with holy contempt,
And honors those who fear the Lord.
If he swears to his own hurt,
He still will keep his promised word.

He does not grind the poor with loans,
He never takes a bribe against simple.
A man like this is like a rock.

Psalm 15

And so, gracious Father, we worship You now through Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end, amen.
