Psalm 1. (c.m.) The difference between the righteous and the wicked. 1 BLESS'D is the man, who shuns the place

Where sinners love to meet: Who fears to walk in wicked ways,

And dreads the scorner's seal. 2 The word of God is his delight:

There all his thoughts abide;
His solace through the glooms of night,

By day his constant guide. 3 As some fair tree, whose roots are spread

Where living streams abound,
Lifts up on high it's verdant head,

With fruitful clusters crown'd; 4 So shall the trees of righteousness,

The planting of the Lord,
Fed by continual streams of grace,

Their timely fruit afford.
5 But sinners—they are driven away

Like chaff before the wind;
They stand not in the judgement day,

Nor slighted mercy find.
6 With favour God his saints discerns,

And crowns with endless days:
But sinners to destruction turns;

They perish in their ways.
