1 Blest is he who loves God's precepts,
Who from sin restrains his feet,
He who will not stand with sinners,
He who shuns the scorners' seat.
2 Blest is he who makes the statutes
Of the Lord his chief delight,
In God's law, divinely perfect,
Meditating day and night.
3 He is like a tree well planted
By the flowing river's side,
Ever green of leaf and fruitful;
Thus shall all his works abide.
4 Like the driven chaff the wicked
Shall be swept from off the land;
With the just they shall not gather,
Nor shall in the judgement stand.
5 Well the Lord will guard the righteous,
For their way to Him is known;
But the way of evildoers
Shall by Him be overthrown.
