Psalms 1 (by Issaac Watts)(amaturely recorded)

1 – Blest is the man who shuns the place
Where sinners love to meet;
Who fears to tread their wicked ways,
And hates the scoffer’s seat:

2 – But in the statutes of the Lord
Has plac’d his chief delight;
By day he reads or hears the word,
And meditates by night.

3 – [He like a plant of gen’rous kind,
By living waters set,
Safe from the storms and blasting wind,
Enjoys a peaceful state.]

4 – Green as the leaf and ever fair,
Shall his profession shine,
While fruits of holiness appear
Like clusters on the vine.

5 – Not so the impious and unjust;
What vain designs they form!
Their hopes are blown away like dust,
Or chaff before the storm.

6 – Sinners in judgment shall not stand
Among the sons of grace,
When Christ the judge at his right hand
Appoints his saints a place.

7 – His eye beholds the path they tread,
His heart approves it well;
But crooked ways of sinners lead
Down to the gates of hell.

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
