Psalm 1

The difference between the righteous and the wicked

Happy the man whose cautious feet

Shun the broad way that sinners go,

Who hates the place where atheists meet,

And fears to talk as scoffers do

He loves t’employ the morning light

Amongst the statutes of the Lord

And spends the wakeful hours of night,

With pleasure, pondering o’er his word

He , like a plant by gentle streams,

Shall flourish in immortal green

And heaven will shine with kindest beams

On every work his hands begin.

But sinners find their counsels crossed:

As chaff before the tempest flies,

So shall their hopes be blown and lost,

When the last trumpet shakes the skies.

In vain the rebel seeks to stand

In judgement with the pious race;

The dreadful Judge with stern command

Divides him to a diff’rent place

“Straight is the way my saints have trod;

I blessed the path, and drew it plain;

But you would choose the crooked road,

And down it leads to endless pain”

IsAac Watts
