Psalm 1

Lyrics:

Psalm 1.1 O greatly bless-ed is the man
who walketh not astray
in counsel of ungodly men,
nor stands in sinner’s way,

nor sitteth in the scorner’s chair;
2 but placeth his delight
upon God’s law, and meditates,
on His law day and night.

3 He shall be like a tree that grows
set by the water side,
which in its season yields its fruit,
and green its leaves abide;

and all he does shall prosper well.
4 The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff which by the wind,
is driven to and fro.

5 In judgment therefore shall not stand
such as ungodly are,
nor in th’assembly of the just
shall wicked men appear.

6 Because the way of godly men
is to Jehovah known;
whereas the way of wicked men
shall quite be overthrown.
