How Blest the Man

  1. How blest the man who does not walk
    where wicked men would guide his feet,
    who stands not in the sinners’ ways
    nor sits upon the scorners’ seat.
    The law of God is his delight,
    his meditation day and night.
  2. For he is like a growing tree,
    which, planted by a flowing stream,
    in season yields its finest fruit;
    its leaves are always fresh and green.
    In all he does he finds success;
    prosperity will he possess.
  3. Not so the wicked! Like the chaff,
    the wind will blow them all away.
    The judgment they will not withstand,
    nor sinners with the righteous stay.
    God knows the way of righteous ones;
    the wicked way will be undone.
