Words: The Scottish Psalter
1 Praise ye the Lord. The man is blessed that fears the Lord aright, He who in his commandments doth greatly take delight. 2 His seed and offspring powerful shall be the earth upon: Of upright men blesséd shall be the generation. 3 Riches and wealth shall ever be within his house in store; And his unspotted righteousness endures for evermore. 4 Unto the upright light doth rise, though he in darkness be: Compassionate, and merciful, and righteous, is he. 5 A good man doth his favor show, and doth to others lend: He with discretion his affairs will guide unto the end. 6 Surely there is not any thing that ever shall him move: The righteous man's memorial shall everlasting prove. 7 When he shall evil tidings hear, he shall not be afraid: His heart is fixed, his confidence upon the Lord is stayed. 8 His heart is firmly stablishéd, afraid he shall not be, Until upon his enemies he his desire shall see. 9 He hath dispersed, giv'n to the poor; his righteousness shall be To ages all; with honor shall his horn be raised high. 10 The wicked shall it see, and fret, his teeth gnash, melt away: What wicked men do most desire shall utterly decay.
