Common Metre Tunes

   1  That man is blest who fears the Lord,
         And walketh in his ways;
      For of thy labor thou shalt eat,
         And prosper all thy days.
   2  Thy wife shall as a fruitful vine
         By thy house sides be found:
      Thy children like to olive-plants
         Thy table shall surround.
   3  Behold, the man that fears the Lord,
         Thus blessed shall he be.
      The Lord shall out of Zion give
         His blessing unto thee.
   4  Thou shalt Jerus'lem's good behold,
         Whilst thou on earth dost dwell.
      Thou shalt thy children's children see,
         And peace on Israel.

   1  Blest the man who fears Jehovah,'
         Walking ever in his ways;
      Thou shalt eat of thy hands' labor,
         And be happy all thy days.
   2  Like a vine in fruit abounding,
         In thy house thy wife is found;
      And like olive-plants, thy children,
         Compassing thy table round.
   3  Lo, on him that fears Jehovah,
         Shall this blessedness attend;
      Thus Jehovah out of Zion
         Shall to thee his blessings send.
   4  Thou shalt see Jerusalem prosper,
         Long as thou on earth shalt dwell;
      Thou shalt see thy children's children,
      And the peace of Israel.
