(Week 23 of the year: Monday)
R. Lead me, Lord, in your justice.
1. You are no God who loves evil;
no sinner is your guest.
The boastful shall not stand their ground
before your face. (R.)
2. You hate all who do evil:
you destroy all who lie.
The deceitful and bloodthirsty man
the Lord detests. (R.)
3. All those you protect shall be glad
you ring out their joy.
You shelter them; in you they rejoice,
those who love your name. (R.)
Your word is a lamp for my steps
and a light for my path.
