Psalm 1

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 98 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 1 First Line: Blest is the man who shuns the place Lyrics: Blest is the man who shuns the place Where sinners love to meet; Who fears to tread their wicked ways, And hates the scoffer's seat: But in the statutes of the Lord Has placed his chief delight; By day he reads or hears the word, And meditates by night. [He, like a plant of gen'rous kind, By living waters set, Safe from the storms and blasting wind, Enjoys a peaceful state.] Green as the leaf, and ever fair, Shall his profession shine While fruits of holiness appear Like clusters on the vine. Not so the impious and unjust; What vain designs they form! Their hopes are blown away like dust, Or chaff before the storm. Sinners in judgment shall not stand Amongst the sons of grace, When Christ, the Judge, at his right hand Appoints his saints a place. His eye beholds the path they tread, His heart approves it well But crooked ways of sinners lead Down to the gates of hell. Topics: Blessings of a person; Sinner and saint's portion; Saints happy, and sinners cursed; Saints and Sinners' portion; Saints and sinner's end; Punishment of sinners; Meditation; Love of God to the righteous, and hatred to the wicked; Judgment day; Happy saint and cursed sinner; End of the righteous and wicked; Sinner cursed, and saint happy

Psalm 1

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 6.6.8.6 Appears in 112 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 1 First Line: The man is ever blessed Lyrics: The man is ever blessed Who shuns the sinners' ways, Among their counsels never stands, Nor takes the scorner's place; But makes the law of God His study and delight, Amidst the labors of the day, And watches of the night. He like a tree shall thrive, With waters near the root; Fresh as the leaf his name shall live; His works are heav'nly fruit. Not so th' ungodly race, They no such blessings find; Their hopes shall flee, like empty chaff Before the driving wind. How will they bear to stand Before that judgment-seat, Where all the saints at Christ's right hand In full assembly meet? He knows, and he approves, The way the righteous go; But sinners and their works shall meet A dreadful overthrow. Topics: Blessings of a person; Sinner and saint's portion; Saints happy, and sinners cursed; Saints and Sinners' portion; Saints and sinner's end; Punishment of sinners; Meditation; Love of God to the righteous, and hatred to the wicked; Judgment day; Happy saint and cursed sinner; End of the righteous and wicked; Sinner cursed, and saint happy

How Blest Are They Who, Fearing God

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 18 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 1 Lyrics: 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.

Psalm 1: That man hath perfect blessedness

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 24 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 1 First Line: That man hath perfect blessedness Lyrics: 1That man hath perfect blessedness, who walketh not astray In counsel of ungodly men, nor stands in sinners’ way, Nor sitteth in the scorner’s chair: 2But placeth his delight Upon God’s law, and meditates on his law day and night. 3He shall be like a tree that grows near planted by a river, Which in his season yields his fruit, and his leaf fadeth never: And all he doth shall prosper well. 4The wicked are not so; But like they are unto the chaff, which wind drives to and fro. 5In judgment therefore shall not stand such as ungodly are; Nor in th’ assembly of the just shall wicked men appear. 6For why? the way of godly men unto the Lord is known: Whereas the way of wicked men shall quite be overthrown.

Psalm 1

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 48 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 1 First Line: Happy the man whose cautious feet Lyrics: Happy the man whose cautious feet Shun the broad way that sinners go, Who hates the place where atheists meet, And fears to talk as scoffers do. He loves t' employ the morning light Amongst the statutes of the Lord; And spends the wakeful hours of night, With pleasure, pondering o'er his word. He, like a plant by gentle streams, Shall flourish in immortal green. And heav'n will shine with kindest beams On every work his hands begin. But sinners find their counsels crossed: As chaff before the tempest flies, So shall their hopes be blown and lost, When the last trumpet shakes the skies. In vain the rebel seeks to stand In judgment with the pious race; The dreadful Judge, with stern command, Divides him to a diff'rent place. "Straight is the way my saints have trod; I blessed the path, and drew it plain; But you would choose the crooked road, And down it leads to endless pain." Topics: Blessings of a person; Sinner and saint's portion; Saints happy, and sinners cursed; Saints and Sinners' portion; Saints and sinner's end; Punishment of sinners; Meditation; Love of God to the righteous, and hatred to the wicked; Judgment day; Happy saint and cursed sinner; End of the righteous and wicked; Sinner cursed, and saint happy

How blest is he who ne'er consents

Appears in 48 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 1 Lyrics: 1 How blest is he, who ne'er consents by ill Advice to walk; Nor stands in Sinners Ways; nor fits where Men profanely talk! 2 But makes the perfect Law of God his Bus'ness and Delight; Devoutly reads therein by Day, and meditates by Night. 3 Like some fair Tree, which, fed by Streams, with timely Fruit does bend, He still shall flourish, and Success all his Designs attend. 4 Ungodly Men, and their Attempts, no lasting Root shall find; Untimely blasted, and dispers'd, like Chaff before the Wind. 5 Their Guilt shall strike the Wicked dumb before the Judge's Face: No formal Hypocrite shall then among the Saints have Place. 6 For God approves the just Man's Ways; to Happiness they tend: But Sinners, and the Paths they tread, shall both in Ruin end.
