1A. The One Is Blest

1 The one is blest who, fearing God,
walks not where sinners meet,
who does not stand with wicked ones,
and shuns the scorners' seat.

2 How blest the one who in God's law
finds goodness and delight,
and meditates upon that law
with gladness day and night.

3 That one is nourished like a tree
set by the river's side;
its leaf is green, its fruit is sure:
the works of such abide.

4 The wicked, like the driven chaff,
are swept from off the land;
they shall not gather with the just,
nor at the judgment stand.

5 The Lord will guard the righteous well,
their way to God is known;
the way of sinners, far from God,
shall surely be o'erthrown.
