We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

1A. The One Is Blest

1 The one is blest who, fearing God,
walks not where sinners meet,
who does not stand with wicked ones,
and shuns the scorners' seat.

2 How blest the one who in God's law
finds goodness and delight,
and meditates upon that law
with gladness day and night.

3 That one is nourished like a tree
set by the river's side;
its leaf is green, its fruit is sure:
the works of such abide.

4 The wicked, like the driven chaff,
are swept from off the land;
they shall not gather with the just,
nor at the judgment stand.

5 The LORD will guard the righteous well,
their way to God is known;
the way of sinners, far from God,
shall surely be o'erthrown.
