558. That Man Is Blest Who, Fearing God

1 That man is blest who, fearing God,
from sin restrains his feet,
who will not stand with wicked men,
who shuns the scorners' seat.

2 Yea, blest is he who makes God's law
his portion and delight,
and meditates upon that law
with gladness day and night.

3 That man is nourished like a tree
set by the rivers' side;
its leaf is green, its fruit is sure,
and thus his works abide.

4 The wicked like the driven chaff
are swept from off 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.
