Lord, who may enter your dwelling place,
and worship at your holy mountain?
Those who do what is right,
who speak the truth from their hearts,
who have no malice on their tongues
and never do evil to their friends.
They who cast no slur upon their neighbors,
and to no harm to their kin,
in whose eyes the widked are despised,
but who honor the followers of God.
They who keep to their word,
who do not exploit the poor,
who accept no bribes against the innocent:
these faithful will stand fast forever.
Paraphrase of Psalm 15, setting by Alfred V. Fedak
Employing a text based on Psalm 15, this anthem brings congregation and choir (or cantor) together in the manner of a responsorial psalm. The refrain of “Lord, who may enter your dwelling place?” is answered in a variety of ways, before a final affirmative statement of “Lord, let us enter.”
