Ps. 112.png
Psalm 112

1 Praise God! Blessed is the man who fears the LORD

And finds delight in following his word. 

2 His children will be mighty in the land; 

His line will know the blessing of God's hand. 

3 Riches and wealth within his house are found; 

His righteousness for ever will abound. 

4 The man who stands for mercy, truth and right

will find the darkness turn to morning light. 

5 Good is the man who gives and freely lends; 

To his affairs with justice he attends. 

6 Surely a righteous man will stand secure; 

His memory for ever will endure. 

7 Though bad news comes he will not be afraid; 

His heart is firm; he trusts the LORD for aid. 

8 He will not be alarmed, his heart holds fast; 

He'll view his foes in triumph at the last. 

9 He freely share his riches with the poor; 

His righteousness for ever will endure. 

The LORD himself exalts his servant's name; 

He gives him strength and dignity and fame. 

10 The wicked, seeing this, will feel dismay; 

He'll gnash his teeth and soon will waste away. 

The wicked and their dreams will come to nought;

They never will enjoy what they have sought.
