Words: The Bay Psalm Book (original spelling retained)
1 O blessed man, that in th'advice of wicked doth not walk Nor stand in sinners way nor sit in chayre of scornfull folk. 2 But in the law of Jehova, is his longing delight; and in his law doth meditate by day and ere by night. 3 And he shall be like to a tree planted by water-rivers: That in his season yields his fruit And his leafe never withers. 4 And all he doth, shall prosper well, the wicked are not so: But they are like unto the chaffe which winde drives to and fro. 5 Therefore shall not ungodly men, rise to stand in the doome, Nor shall the sinners with the just, in their assemblie come. 6 For of the righteous men, the Lord aknowledgeth the way: but the way of ungodly men, shall utterly decay.
