Grant me justice, Lord! I have walked without blame.
In the Lord I have trusted; I have not faltered.
Test me, Lord, and try me; search my heart and mind.
Your love is before my eyes; I walk guided by your faithfulness.

Do not take me away with sinners, nor my life with the violent.
Their hands carry out their schemes; their right hands are full of bribes.
But I walk without blame; redeem me, be gracious to me!
My foot stands on level ground; in assemblies I will bless the Lord.

Psalm 26:1-3, 9-12
