My Heart Has Heard an Oracle

  1. My heart has heard an oracle
    about the wicked’s sin:
    no fear of God abides in him;
    he feels no dread within.
  2. He views himself with blind conceit
    and sinfulness denies.
    He speaks with false and evil tongue,
    no longer good or wise.
  3. In bed he plots his evil ways;
    he schemes thro’out the night,
    as he commits himself to sin,
    rejecting what is right.
  4. Your steadfast love is great, O LORD;
    it reaches heaven high.
    Your faithfulness is wonderful,
    extending to the sky.
  5. Your righteousness is very great,
    like mountains high and steep;
    your justice, like the ocean depths.
    Both man and beast you keep.
  6. How precious is your steadfast love!
    What confidence it brings!
    Both high and low find shelter in
    the shadow of your wings.
  7. They feast within your house, and drink
    from streams of your delight.
    With you is found the spring of life;
    in your light we see light.
  8. To those who know you as their God
    your steadfast love impart;
    maintain your righteousness to those
    of pure and upright heart.
  9. Let not the ruthless foot of pride
    approach and threaten me,
    nor let the hand of wickedness
    compel me then to flee.
  10. There evildoers fallen lie
    who righteousness despise!
    Cast down and helpless there they stay,
    unable to arise.
