HOW

PSALM I.

blest is he who ne'er consents
By ill advice to walk;

Nor stands in sinner's ways, nor sits
Where men profanely talk.

2 But makes the perfect law of God
His bus'ness and delight;
Devoutly reads therein by day,

And meditates by night.

3 Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams, With timely fruit does bend,

He still shall flourish, and success

All his designs attend.

4 For God approves the just man's ways,
To happiness they tend;

But sinners, and the path they tread,
Shall both in ruin end.
