Representative Text

1 Who fears the Lord blefs'd man is he,
Who much doth in his laws delight.
2 His seed on earth shall mighty be,
Blest shall the race be of th' upright.
3 Wealth in his house, much riches too,
His justice lasts for aye likewise.
4 Unto the upright man also
There doth in darkness light arise.
He gracious is and righteous:
And full is of compassion.

5 A good man lends and favour shews
His works guides with discretion.
6 He sure shall not be mov'd for aye:
Aye shall the just be in record.
7 Ill tidings shall not him dismay;
His heart's fixt trusting on the Lord.

8 His heart's confirm'd, he shall not fear,
Till on his foes his will he see.
9 He hath dispers'd; gives to the poor:
His righteousness for aye shall be:

His horn with honour high shall rise.
10 The lewd shall grieve, and melt away,
And gnash his teeth, when this he spies,
The wicked's wish shall quite decay.
