Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

O blessed man who walks not in The counsel of ungodly men

O blessed man who walks not in The counsel of ungodly men

Representative Text

1 O blessed man who walks not in
The counsel of ungodly men,
Nor stands within the sinners way,
Nor will the scoffers seat sit in.
2 But In Jehovah's written law
He takes exceeding great delight;
And in his law he meditates
With pious pleasure day and night.

3 For he is like a goodly tree
By streams of waters planted near
Which in due season yields its fruit,
Whose leaf shall ever green appear;
And all he does shall prosper still.
4 But the ungodly are not so:
For they are like the chaff which by
The wind is driven to and fro.

5 Therefore in judgment shall not stand
Such as ungodly are, as clear;
Nor in the assembly of the just
Shall sinners in that day appear.
6 Because the way of righteous men
The Lord with approbation knows;
Whereas the way of evil men
To their entire destruction goes.

The Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New Testament, 1758
