A Sincere Heart
Posted: Tuesday, January 17
Verse of the Day:
Who may worship in your sanctuary, Lord? Who may enter your presence on your holy hill? Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking the truth from sincere hearts. (Psalm 15:1-2)
A Hymn by, J.E. Seddon
V1 LORD, who are they that may dwell within the courts of your house?
And by what lives do they show they dwell on your holy hill?
V2 They lead an incorrupt life and do the thing that is right.
They speak the truth from their heart and use not their tongue for harm.
V3 They do no wrong to their friends and will not slander their name.
They scorn the one who is false but love those who fear the LORD.
V4 They stand by what they have vowed, although it be to their hurt.
They do not sin with their wealth and will not be swayed with bribes.
V5 Now these are they who may dwell within the courts of the LORD.
Their lives shall never be moved; they stand in their God, secure.
Hymns are generally immersed in scriptural truth and principle. I thought it would be enjoyable to use one of these hymns to reflect the scriptural truth of this Psalm. Let it challenge us to live uprightly before the Lord our God.
