THE HONOURABLE AND RIGHT REVEREND HENRY,
LORD BISHOP OF LICHFIELD AND COVENTRY,
PSALMS AND HYMNS
WITH BIS LORDSHIP'S PERMISSION,
BY HIS MOST OBEDIENT
AND OBLIGED SERVANT,
Psalm 1. (cm.)
The difference between the righteous and the Kicked.
.D>LESS'D is the man, who shuns the place
The word of God is his delight:
There all his thoughts abide;
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,
Their timely fruit•afford.
But sinners—they are driven away
Like chaff before the wind;
Nor slighted mercy find.
With favour God his saints discern?,
But sinners to destruction turns;—
