View Lyrics
The blest are those whose footsteps shun
the path the sinful walk,
whose lives turn from all wickedness,
whose mouths avoid loose talk.

In God's instructions they find health;
His laws are their delight.
They meditate upon this word
in thanks both day and night.

Like mighty trees by flowing streams,
their living bears good fruit.
There is no dryness in their lives,
no weakness at their root.

The wicked sing a different song,
like dried-up leaves they blow
from place to place with no true joy;
in emptiness they go.
