Consider that the righteous man

Consider that the righteous man

Full Text

1 Consider that the righteous man
Is God's peculiar choice:
And when to him I make my pray'r,
He always hears my voice.

2 Then stand in awe of his commands;
Flee ev'ry thing that's ill;
Commune in private with your hearts,
And bind them to his will.

3 The place of other sacrifice
Let righteousness supply;
And let your hope, securely fix'd,
On God alone rely.

4 While worldly minds impatient grow,
More prosp'rous times to see;
Still let the glories of thy face
shine brightly, Lord, on me.

5 So shall my heart o'er flow with joy
More lasting and more true,
Than theirs, who stores of corn and wine
Successively renew.

6 Then down in peace I'll lay my head,
And take my needful rest:
No other guard, O Lord, I crave,
Of thy defence posses'd.
