PSALMS.

Psalm 1. (cm.)

The difference between the righteous and the Kicked.

.D>LESS'D is the man, who shuns the place
•" Where sinners love to meet:
Who fears to walk in wicked ways,
And dreads the scorner's seat.

The word of God is his delight:

There all his thoughts abide;
His solace through the glooms df nighj,

By day his constant guide.

As some fair tree, whose roots are spread

Where living streams abound, Lifts up on high it's verdant head,

With fruitful clusters crown'd;

So shall the trees of righteousness,

The planting of the Lord,
Fed by continual streams of grace,

Their timely fruit•afford.

But sinners—they are driven away

Like chaff before the wind;
They stand not in the judgement day,

Nor slighted mercy find.

With favour God his saints discern?,
And crowns with endless days:

But sinners to destruction turns;—
They perish in their ways.
