Representative Text

1 How blest and happy is the man
Who walketh not astray
In counsel of ungodly men,
Nor stands in sinners’ way,
Nor sitteth in the scorner’s chair,
But places his delight
Upon God’s law, and meditates
Upon it day and night.

How blest and happy is the man
Who places His delight,
Upon God’s law, and meditates
Upon it day and night.

2 He shall be like a tree that grows
Set by a river’s side,
Which in its season yields its fruit,
And greet its leaves abide,
And all he does shall prosper well;
The wicked are not so,
But like the chaff before the wind,
Are driven to and fro. [Refrain]
