ST. FULBERT | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
Henry John Gauntlett, 1805-1876
1 PRAISE ye the Lord. The man is blessed
That fears the Lord aright,
He who in his commandments all
Doth greatly take delight.
2 His seed shall power have on earth
And great prosperity:
The children of the upright man
Shall ever blessed be.
3 Riches and wealth shall ever be
Within his house in store;
And his unspotted righteousness
Endures for evermore.
4 Unto the upright light doth rise,
Though he in darkness be:
Compassionate, and merciful,
And righteous is he.
5 A good man doth his favour show,
And doth to others lend:
He in the judgment will his cause
Maintain unto the end.
6 Surely there is not anything
That ever shall him move:
The righteous man's memorial
Shall everlasting prove.
7 When he shall evil tidings hear,
He shah not be afraid:
His heart is fixed, his confidence
Upon the Lord is stay'd.
8 His heart is firmly stablished,
Afraid he shall not be,
Until upon his enemies
He his desire shall see.
9 He hath dispersed his wealth abroad,
And given to the poor;
His horn in honour shall be raised,
His righteousness endure.
10 The wicked shall it see, and fret,
His teeth gnash, melt away:
What wicked men do most desire
Shall utterly decay.
