This is my commitment as I sing my praise to You
I will walk uprightly it’s the least that I can do.
Walking in integrity before my family
Careful to protect my eyes from things I should not see.
I’ll keep myself from evil ways and those who walk astray
My heart from all perversity and pride will always stay away.
Deceivers, liars, wicked men with me can never dwell
I’ll do my part to cut them off and from our midst expel.
My life will be surrounded by the faithful of the land
And only those above reproach beside me e’er shall stand.
