TLH#414 The Man is Ever Blest

TLH#413  |  All Hymns  |  TLH#421

1. The man is ever blessed
Who shuns the sinners’ ways,
Among their councils never stands,
Nor takes the scorners’ place,

2. But makes the Law of God
His study and delight
Amid the labors of the day,
And watches of the night.

3. He like a tree shall thrive,
With waters near the root;
Fresh as the leaf his name shall live;
His works are heav’nly fruit.

4. Not so th’ungodly race,
They no such blessings find;
Their hopes shall flee like empty chaff
Before the driving wind.

5. How will they bear to stand
Before that judgment seat
Where all the saints, at Christ’s right hand,
In full assembly meet?

6. He knows, and He approves
The way the righteous go;
But sinners and their works shall meet
A dreadful overthrow.
