Praise God! The man is blessed who fears the Lord
Praise God! the man is blessed who fears the Lord
and finds delight in following his word;
his children will be mighty in the land;
his line will know the blessing of God’s hand.
2. Riches and wealth within his house are found;
his righteousness for ever will abound;
the man who stands for mercy, truth and right
will find the darkness turn to morning light.
3. Good is the man who gives and freely lends;
to his affairs with justice he attends;
surely a righteous man will stand secure;
his memory for ever will endure.
4. Although bad news may come, he’s not afraid;
his heart is firm; he trusts the Lord for aid;
he will not be alarmed; his heart holds fast;
he’ll view his foes in triumph at the last.
5. He freely shares his riches with the poor;
his righteousness for ever will endure;
the Lord himself exalts his servant’s name;
he gives him strength and dignity and fame.
6. The wicked, seeing this, will feel dismay;
he’ll gnash his teeth and soon will waste away;
the dreams of wicked men will come to nought;
they never will enjoy what they have sought.
