158. The One Is Blest

1 The one is blest who, fearing God
Walks not where sinners meet,
Who does not stand with wicked ones,
Who shuns the scorners’ seat.

2 How blest is 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.
