1 BLEST is the man resolv'd to stand
Aloof where impious men repair;
And views with dread the scorner's chair: 2 Far other joy his heart retains ;
Thy law's his mind's divinest store: • What truths his day's perusal gains, .
By night he sweetly ponders o’er. 3 He, like the tree, where streamlet flows;
Beneath his timely fruit shall bend; Unfading foliage grace his boughs,
And blessings all his steps attend, * But oh! the dread reverse of those
Thy law whoneither love nor fear!
In judgment where shall they appear? .
5 But-all His saints the Saviour knows:
Their path to life eternal tends; While the broad road the sinner goes . In fierce destruction always ends.
6 Write in our hearts Thy gracious Word;
With ev'ry fruit adorn us here;
May we with all Thy saints appear.
Psalm II. Vunity of opposition to Messiah's kingdom. 1 THE schemes and rage of men- how vain
Against the LORD's anointed King!
*And all His cords we'll from us fling ! 2 When Heav'n's dread Majesty looks down,
He scorns to view their vain array ;
Sweeps all their powerless ranks away. 3 Hear My decree, ye sons of earth!
I've set my King on Zion's hill : • This day He's mine, by royal birth,
* And all my counsels shall fulfil. 4 'He asks dominion at my hands,
Nor shall my Son, in vain, implore; • My CHRisT shall reign o’er ev'ry land,
His kingdom reach to ev'ry shore.' 5 With kings and princes of the earth,
May we our timely homage pay, Serve now with fear and holy mirth,
Lest we be lost by dread delay.
