Psalter 156

Verse 1
Do ye, O men, speak righteousness
And upright judgment mete?
Nay, in your hearts is wickedness,
And in your hands deceit.

Verse 2
The wicked, from their earliest days,
In sin are gone astray,
With froward heart, in foolish pride,
From wisdom turned away.

Verse 3
The God of vengeance will destroy
The wicked from His sight;
The Lord will bring to nought their pow'r
And scatter all their might.

Verse 4
The good shall triumph and rejoice,
And this shall be confessed;
On earth the God of justice reigns,
And righteousness is blessed.
