Happy the people who refuse

Happy the people who refuse
to walk the way the wicked choose,
who will not stand where sinners meet,
nor with the scornful take their seat:
the word of God is their delight,
their meditation day and night.

2. Trees set along the waterside
shall yield their fruit at harvest-tide;
though parched the landscape, bare the sky,
their leaves will never fade or die:
so prosper those who daily draw
upon the Lord’s eternal law.

3. Not so the wicked! What are they
but winnowed chaff that blows away?
When judgement comes, they shall not stand
among the just at God’s right hand:
the Lord protects his people’s path,
but godless ways must end in wrath.
