Psalm 1

Land of Rest
Land of Rest

1 Blessed is the one who turns away

from where the wicked walk,

Who does not stand in sinners’ paths

or sit with those who mock.

2 Instead he finds God’s holy law

his joy and great delight

He makes the precepts of the LORD

his study day and night.

3 He prospers ever like a tree

that’s planted by a stream,

And in due season yields its fruit;

its leaves are always green.

​4 Not so the wicked! They are like

the chaff that’s blown away.

5 They will not stand when judgment comes

or with the righteous stay.

6. It is the LORD who sees and knows

the way the righteous go,

But those who live an evil life

the LORD will overthrow.
