The Reverend Christopher L. Webber, author of the following words (which date to 1986), is an Episcopal priest.  Psalm 15 is the basis for the text.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

1.  Lord, who may dwell within your house

Or on Your holy hill?

Those who do good and speak the truth,

Whose lives are blameless still.

2.  Who have no guile upon their tongues

Nor harm their neighbor’s life,

But honor those who fear the Lord

And turn away from strife.

3.  Who do no wrong, but keep their word

And seek no bribe or gain;

All those who do such things shall live

And safe from harm remain.
