What God Requires of Man

(A)With what shall I come to the Lord
And bow myself before the God on high?
Shall I come to Him with (B)burnt offerings,
With yearling calves?
Does the Lord take delight in (C)thousands of rams,
In ten thousand rivers of oil?
Shall I present my (D)firstborn for my rebellious acts,
The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?

But to (G)do justice, to (H)love [a]kindness,
And to walk [b](I)humbly with your God?
