Psalm 1

Words: Brady and Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David

Common Metre Tunes

 1  How blest is he who ne'er consents
       by ill advice to walk;
    Nor stands in sinners' ways nor sits
       where men profanely talk.

 2  But makes the perfect law of God
       his business and delight;
    Devoutly reads therein by day,
       and meditates by night.

 3  Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams,
       with timely fruit does bend,
    He still shall flourish, and success
       all his designs attend.

 4  Ungodly men and their attempts
       no lasting root shall find;
    Untimely blasted, and dispers'd
       like chaff before the wind.

 5  Their guilt shall strike the wicked dumb
       before their Judge's face;
    No formal hypocrite shall then
       amongst the saints have place.

 6  For God approves the just man's ways,
       to happiness they tend;
    But sinners, and the paths they tread,
       shall both in ruin, end.
