CXII. Psalm CXII

1 The man is blest that God doth fear,
and that his law doth love indeed;
His seed on earth God will uprear,
and bless such as from him proceed!
His house with riches he will fill,
his righteousness endure shall still.

2 Unto the righteous doth arise
in trouble joy, in darkness light;
Compassion great is in his eyes,
and mercy always in his sight;
Yea, pity moveth him to lend,
he doth with judgment things expend,

3 And surely he shall never fail,
for in remembrance had is he;
Nor tidings ill his mind assail,
who in the Lord sure hope doth see;
His heart is firm, his fear is past,
for he shall see his foes down cast,

4 He did well for the poor provide,
his righteousness doth still remain;
And his estate with praise abide,
which wicked men behold with pain;
Yea, gnash their teeth thereat shall they,
and so consume and melt away.
