Psalm 1: That man hath perfect blessedness
Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)
1 That man hath perfect blessedness, who walketh not astray In counsel of ungodly men, nor stands in sinners’ 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 near planted by a river, Which in his season yields his fruit, and his leaf fadeth never:
And all he doth shall prosper well. 4 The wicked are not so; But like they are unto the chaff, which wind drives 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 For why? the way of godly men unto the Lord is known: Whereas the way of wicked men shall quite be overthrown.
