Psalm 112

Words: The Scottish Psalter

Common Metre Tunes

 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.
