Christian Worship The Happiness Of The Righteous.
The man, in life wherever placed,
Hath happiness in store,
Who walks not in the wicked’s way,
Nor learns their guilty lore:
Nor from the seat of scornful pride
Casts forth his eyes abroad,
But with humility and awe,
Still walks before his God.
That man shall flourish like the trees
Which by the streamlets grow;
The fruitful top is spread on high,
And firm the root below.
But he whose blossom buds in guilt
Shall to the ground be cast,
And, like the rootless stubble, tossed
Before the sweeping blast.
