Psalm 1:1–3 (Listen)

Book One

The Way of the Righteous and the Wicked


1:1   Blessed is the man1
    who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
  nor stands in the way of sinners,
    nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
  but his delight is in the law2 of the LORD,
    and on his law he meditates day and night.


  He is like a tree
    planted by streams of water
  that yields its fruit in its season,
    and its leaf does not wither.
  In all that he does, he prospers.

2. Oh, what blessing to be near Thee 
And to hearken to Thy voice! 
May I ever love and fear Thee 
That Thy Word may be my choice! 
Oft were hardened sinners, Lord, 
Struck with terror by Thy Word; 
But to him who for sin grieveth 
Comfort sweet and hope it giveth. 

3. Lord, Thy words are waters living 
Where I quench my thirsty need; 
Lord, Thy words are bread life-giving, 
On Thy words my Soul doth feed. 
Lord, Thy words shall be my light 
Through death’s vale and dreary night; 
Yea, they are my sword prevailing 
And my cup of joy unfailing.
