Dicha grande es la del hombre

Representative Text

1 Dicha grande es la del hombre,
Cuyas sendas rectas son;
No anda con los pecadores,
En actuar de perversión.
A los malos consejeros
Deja, porque teme el mal;

2 Antes, en la ley divina
Cifra su mayor placer,
Meditando día y noche
En su divinal saber.
Este, como el árbol verde,
Bien regado y en sazón,
Frutos abundantes rinde
Y hojas que perennes son.

3 El prospera en lo que emprende
Y le sale todo bien;
Mas funestos resultados
Los impíos siempre ven.
Porque Dios la senda mira
Por la cual los suyos van;
Otra es la de los impíos:
Al infierno bajarán.
