Hymn/Song Information

The man is blest that hath not lent to




The man is blest that hath not lent
to wicked men his ear,
Nor led his life as sinners do,
nor sat in scorner's chair.


But in the law of God the Lord
doth set his whole delight,
And in the same doth exercise
himself both day and night.


He shall be like a tree that is
planted the rivers nigh,
Which in due season bringeth forth
its fruit abundantly;


Whose leaf shall never fade nor fall,
but flourishing shall stand:
E'en so all things shall prosper well
that this man takes in hand.


As for ungodly men, with them
it shall be nothing so;
But as the chaff, which by the wind
is driven to and fro.


Therefore the wicked men shall not
in judgment stand upright,
Nor in th' assembly of the just
shall sinners come in sight.


For why? The way of godly men
unto the Lord is known:
Whereas the way of wicked men
shall quite be overthrown.
