PSALMS.

1 First Version. C. M.

The blessedness of the Righteous. 1 Blest is the man who shuns the place

Where sinners love to meet;
Who fears to walk in wicked ways,

And dreads the scorner's seat. 2 The word of God is his delight,

There all his thoughts abide ;
His solace through the gloom of night,

By day his constant guide. 3 As some fair tree, whose roots are spread

Where living streams abound,
Lifts up on high its verdant head,

With fruitful clusters crown'd:
4 So shall the trees of righteousness,

The planting of the Lord,
Fed by continual streams of grace,

Their timely fruit afford.
5 With favour God his saints discerns,

And crowns with endless days :
But sinners to destruction turns,

They perish in their ways.
