1 How blest are those who fear the LORD
and greatly love God's holy will.
Their children share their great reward,
and blessings all their days shall fill.
2 Abounding wealth shall bless their home,
their righteousness fore'er endure.
To them shall light arise in gloom,
for they are merciful and pure.
3 The people who befriend the weak
in justice shall their cause maintain.
True peace shall their whole life attend,
and long their memory shall remain.
4 By evil tidings not dismayed,
the righteous trust in God alone.
Their heart is steadfast, unafraid,
for they shall see their foes o'erthrown.
5 Dispersing gifts among the poor,
the righteous for their needs provide.
Their righteousness shall thus endure;
their strength in honor shall abide.
6 The wicked will be brought to shame,
while righteous ones will see the LORD.
Unrighteous hopes will not see gain,
for sin will find its due reward.
