ACcept us, O Lord,

Lord, I have loved the beauty of thy house, and the place of the habitation of thy glory.

Destroy not, O God, my foul with the impious, and my life with bloody men.

In whose hands are iniquities, their righthand is filled with gifts.

But I have walked in my innocency: redeem me, and have mercy on me.

My foot hath flood in the right way; in the churches I will bless thee, O Lord. Glory be to the Fa
