001) Blest and Happy is the Man


1 Blest and Happy Is the Man

  1. Blest and happy is the man who does never walk astray, Nor with the ungodly men stands in sinners' way.

    Chorus:
    All he does prospers well, but the wicked are not so; They are chaff before the wind, driven to and fro.
  2. Ne\'er in scorner\'s chair he sits, for he places his delight In God\'s law and meditates on it day and night.

    Chorus:
    All he does prospers well, but the wicked are not so; They are chaff before the wind, driven to and fro.
  3. He shall be a tree that grows, planted by the river\'s side, Which in season yields its fruit; green its leaves abide.

    Chorus:
    All he does prospers well, but the wicked are not so; They are chaff before the wind, driven to and fro.

002) Psalm 1


2 Psalm 1

  1. Oh, blessed is the man who does not walk in wicked ways; Who will not with the scoffers sit nor with the sinners stray. The law of the Eternal shall be his true delight; He meditates upon it forever day and night.
  2. He shall be like a tree that grows beside the flowing stream, Which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf is always green, And all he does shall prosper, unlike the wicked men, For they are like the chaff that is scattered by the wind.
  3. And when the day of judgment comes the wicked shall not stand, And from God\'s congregation then the sinner shall be banned; God watches o\'er His people, and guides all godly men, But wicked ways shall perish, and not be seen again.

003) Trust in God and Stand in Awe


3 Trust in God and Stand in Awe

  2. For Thou art not a God who dost in wickedness delight; No evil shall abide with Thee, nor fools stand in Thy sight. All evildoers Thou dost hate, cut off shall liars be; The bloody and deceitful man abhorred is by Thee.
  3. But I into Thy house will come in Thy abundant grace; And I will worship in Thy fear toward Thy holy place. Because of watch ful enemies, O lead me by Thy grace, And in Thy righteousness, Thy way make straight before my face.
  4. Let all who trust in Thee be glad, in shouts their praise proclaim; Thou savest them; let all rejoice who love Thy holy name. For Lord, unto the righteous man Thou wilt Thy blessing yield; With favor Thou wilt compass him about as with a shield.

005) Turn, O God, and Save Me


5 Turn, O God, and Save Me

  1. O Lord God, rebuke me not in anger, Nor in hot displeasure chastise me, O God. Be gracious, Lord, and show me Your mercy; Heal me, O God, for I languish and ache.
  2. O Lord God, how long are You in helping? Turn, O God, and save me; deliver my soul, For Your great love, for the sake of Your mercies; For in the grave there is no thought of You.

  2. When I look up unto the heav\'ns which Thine own fingers framed, Unto the moon and to the stars, which were by Thee ordained; Then say I, what is man that Thou should be mindful of him? Or what, the son of man, that Thou so kind to him should be?

11 The Heavens God\'s Glory Do Declare

  1. The heav\'ns God\'s glory do declare, The skies His handiworks teach; Day after day their speech pours forth, And knowledge, night after night. There is no speech nor spoken word; Their voice is never heard; And yet their voice spreads to all the earth, Their words to the ends of the world.
  2. The heav\'ns a tent for the sun He made, Which comes forth like a bridegroom, Leaving his chamber glowing bright, To run his course with joy. From heaven\'s end its rising is, Its circuit to its ends; And there is nothing from its heat, No, nothing is hidden thereof.
