A Wisdom Psalm
      How blest are they who venture not
         Into the dark and sinful way,
      But find delight in God's own law,
         And contemplate it night and day.
      As trees beside the stream they grow
         And flourish, wholesome fruit they bear;
      The wicked lot are cast aside
         And lost to their own dark despair.
      The judgment of the LORD is sure
         And good to those who seek God's face;
      The righteous find themselves redeemed,
         And heirs to God's all-knowing grace.
