Verse 1: How blest are they who, fearing God, From sin restrain their feet, Who will not with the wicked stand, Who shun the scorner’s seat.
Verse 2: How blest are those who make God’s law Their treasure and delight, And meditate upon that word With gladness day and night.
Verse 3: Their lives are nourished like a tree Set by the river’s side; Its leaf is green, its fruit is sure, So all their works abide.
Verse 4: The wicked, like the driven chaff, Are blown across the land; They shall not gather with the just Nor in the judgment stand.
Verse 5: The LORD will guard the righteous well; Their way to Him is known; The way of sinner, far from God, Shall surely be o’erthrown.
