|1 (1)||Psalm 1 Version 1||CM|
|HOW blest are they who turn to God,
Forsaking sinful ways;
Renouncing haunts of worldly minds,
And unbelieving days.
|2||They make the teaching of the Lord
Their quest and great delight;
And to its guidance daily turn,
With ever clearer sight.
|3||Like trees they stand, so full of life,
The living stream beside;
They yield their fruit, and strong endure,
No matter what betide.
|4||But those who to this boasting world
Commit their hope and trust,
The coming Day shall drive away,
Like worthless chaff, or dust.
|5||O mighty grace, that we may stand
Among the sons of love!
When Christ the Lord, our coming King,
Shall lift our souls above.
