Psalm 112: Praise ye the Lord. The man is bless'd
Meter: C.M. (8,6,8,6)
1 Praise ye the Lord. The man is bless’d that fears the Lord aright, He who in his commandements doth greatly take delight.
2 His seed and offspring powerful shall be the earth upon: Of upright men blessed shall be the generation.
3 Riches and wealth shall ever be within his house in store; And his unspotted righteousness endures for evermore.
4 Unto the upright light doth rise, though he in darkness be: Compassionate, and merciful, and righteous, is he.
5 A good man doth his favour shew, and doth to others lend: He with discretion his affairs will guide unto the end.
6 Surely there is not any thing that ever shall him move: The righteous man’s memorial shall everlasting prove.
7 When he shall evil tidings hear, he shall not be afraid: His heart is fix’d, his confidence upon the Lord is stay’d.
8 His heart is firmly stablished, afraid he shall not be, Until upon his enemies he his desire shall see.
9 He hath dispers’d, giv’n to the poor; his righteousness shall be To ages all; with honour shall his horn be raised high.
10 The wicked shall it see, and fret, his teeth gnash, melt away: What wicked men do most desire shall utterly decay.
