Psalm 112 W.K.
Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre
1 The man is blest that God doth fear, and that his law doth love indeed; His seed on earth God will uprear, and bless such as from him proceed! His house with riches he will fill, his righteousness endure shall still.
2 Unto the righteous doth arise in trouble joy, in darkness light; Compassion great is in his eyes, and mercy always in his sight; Yea, pity moveth him to lend, he doth with judgment things expend,
3 And surely he shall never fail, for in remembrance had is he; Nor tidings ill his mind assail, who in the Lord sure hope doth see; His heart is firm, his fear is past, for he shall see his foes down cast,
4 He did well for the poor provide, his righteousness doth still remain; And his estate with praise abide, which wicked men behold with pain; Yea, gnash their teeth thereat shall they, and so consume and melt away.
