|1 (2)||Psalm 1 Version 2||CM|
|I ONCE despised and scorned the name
Of my Creator God,
Believing every boastful claim
Of those who spurn His Word.
|2||I walked in bondage to the ways
Of this lost world below,
And spent my strength and passing days
In selfishness and show.
|3||Now in His Word my soul has found
All knowledge, truth and light;
Diffusing all my wondering mind
With unsurpassed delight.
|4||Secure in Christ, He keeps me by
A living stream of grace,
And turns the sorest trial or sigh
To fruitfulness and peace.
|5||Without His pardoning love would I
No place in Heaven find,
But be condemned, at death, to fly
As chaff before the wind.
|6||I’ll trust His never-failing love
Who knows and keeps His own;
He guards my way to realms above
And watches from His throne.
