Hymn 001Play music
1. Blessed are they who listen not to evil counsel,
Turn aside from ev'ry thought of sin;
Day and night, the law of God their Maker
Is their joy and meditation, well of life within.
2 Blessed are they, for as a tree by streams of water
Spreads its leaves in bountiful displays,
Bears and yields its ripened fruit in season-
So shall they in ev'ry calling prosper all their days.
3 Blessed are they, though sinners like the chaff be scattered,
Blessed are they, though winds of judgement blow;
From the Lord, upon His righteous servants,
Loving care and tender mercies evermore shall flow .
