81. How Blest Are They Who, Fearing God

1 How blest are they who, fearing God,
from sin restrain their feet,
who will not with the wicked stand,
who shun the scorner's seat.

2 How blest are they who make God's law
their treasure and delight,
and meditate upon that word
with gladness day and night.

3 Their lives are nourished like a tree
set by the river's side;
its leaf is green, its fruit is sure,
so all their works abide.

4 The wicked, like the driven chaff,
are blown across the land;
they shall not gather with the just,
nor in the judgment stand.

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