Where Do you Stand, Walk or Sit? (Psalms 1)



Never ever walk in the counsel of the ungodly.
The path of the sinners is not for the godly.
The righteous sits not in the seat of the scornful.
His ways should never be shameful.
His gladness is in the law of the Lord.
He doth daily meditate on the laws of God.
He is comparative to a tree planted by the waters.
The fruit in season it does showers.
Never will its leaves ever wither.
Anything he lays hands on does prosper.


The ungodly are compared to chaff blown by the wind.
Their stand is not grounded in the mind.
For they will stand not in judgement.
And the sinner won't mingle in the congregation of the saint.
The Lord knowest the way of the righteous.
He shuns the ways of the covetious
Surely we should not compare with the sinner
Yet always we associate with the winner.
