PSALM 1 (a) C.M. [Sing Psalms]
Recommended Tunes: 43 Creator, 109 Tallis, 99 St Peter
1 Blessed is the one who turns away
from where the wicked walk,
Who does not stand in sinners’ paths
or sit with those who mock.
2 Instead he finds God’s holy law
his joy and great delight;
He makes the precepts of the LORD
his study day and night.
3 He prospers ever like a tree
that’s planted by a stream,
And in due season yields its fruit;
its leaves are always green.
4 Not so the wicked! They are like
the chaff that’s blown away.
5 They will not stand when judgment comes
or with the righteous stay.
6 It is the LORD who sees and knows
the way the righteous go,
But those who live an evil life
the LORD will overthrow.
