 Psalm 1

1Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodlya, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. 2But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not witherb; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. 5Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalm I

The Good man and the Bad man

Happy is the man who obeys
The breath of God that sweeps across
The strings of Law and Prophecy
For he shall never suffer loss.

 How fortunate is the one who
Lives beneath the tender graces of God,
And does not walk, stand or sit
With people disgracing God.

Hidden springs of strength are found
Through meditation of Jehovahís ways.
My love to lose, my will is His,
And by that loss Iím free to praise.

The fruitless, rootless wicked life,
The chaff which the wind blows away,
The nothingness of the wicked
Walking in darkness perish away.
