PSALM 15. DOMINE QUIS HABITABIT, by            
First Line: In tabernacle thine, o lord, who shall remain?
Last Line: Who thus proceeds, for aye, in sacred mount shall reign.


In tabernacle Thine, O Lord, who shall remain?
Lord, of Thy holy hill who shall the rest obtain?
Even he, that leads of life an uncorrupted train,
Whose deeds of righteous heart, whose hearty words be plain,
Who with deceitful tongue hath never used to feign,
Nor neighbor hurts by deed, nor doth with slander stain.
Whose eyes a person vile do hold in vile disdain,
But doth with honor great the godly entertain;
Who word to neighbor given doth faithfully maintain
Although some worldly loss thereby he may sustain,
From biting usury who ever doth refrain,
Who sells not guiltless cause for filthy love of gain;
Who thus proceeds, for aye, in sacred mount shall reign.
