Words: Sternhold and Hopkins, The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Metre

Common Metre Tunes

   1  Blessèd art thou that fearest God,
         and walkest in his ways;
      For of thy labor thou shalt eat,
         happy shall be thy days.
   2  Like fruitful vines on thy house-side,
         so doth thy wife spring out;
      Thy children stand like olive plants
         thy table round about.
   3  Thus art thou blest that fearest God,
         and he shall let thee see
      The promised Jerusalem,
         and her felicity.
   4  Thou shalt thy children's children see,
         to thy great joy's increase
      And likewise grace on Israel,
         prosperity and peace.
