311 (S.M.) Isaac Watts

That man is ever blest,

Who shuns the sinners' ways,

And in their counsel never walks,

Nor takes a scorner's place;

But makes the law of God

His study and delight,

Amidst the labours of the day

And watches of the night.

He like a tree shall thrive,

With waters near the root.

Fresh as the leaf, his name shall live;

His works are heav'nly fruit.

Not so ungodly men;

They no such blessings find:

Their hopes shall flee like empty chaff

Before the driving wind.

How will they bear to stand

Before that judgment seat,

Where all the saints at Christ's right hand

In full assembly meet?

He knows and He approves

The way the righteous go:

But sinners and their works shall meet

A dreadful overthrow.
