Psalm words

1    Bless'd is each one that fears the Lord,
       and walketh in his ways;
2    For of thy labour thou shalt eat,
       and happy be always.
3    Thy wife shall as a fruitful vine
       by thy house' sides be found:
     Thy children like to olive-plants
       about thy table round.

4    Behold, the man that fears the Lord,
       thus blessed shall he be.
5    The Lord shall out of Sion give
       his blessing unto thee:
     Thou shalt Jerus'lem's good behold
       whilst thou on earth dost dwell.
6    Thou shalt thy children's children see,
       and peace on Israel.
