HOW blest is he who neer consents
By ill advice to walk;
Nor stands in sinners ways, nor sits
Where men profanely talk.
But makes the perfect law of God
His business and delight;
Devoutly reads therein by day,
And meditates by night.
Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams,
With timely fruit does bend,
He still shall flourish, and success
All his designs attend.
Ungodly men and their attempts
No lasting root shall find;
Untimely blasted, and dispersd
Like chaff before the wind.
Their guilt shall strike the wicked dumb
Before their Judges face;
No formal hypocrite shall then
Amongst the saints have place.
For God approves the just mans ways
To happiness they tend;
But sinners, and the paths they tread,
Shall both in ruin end.
