Eyes That See

“I Once Was Blind”

“Psalm 1”

Psalm 1
Blessed is the man who neither walks nor stands,
Amongst men with wicked and sinful hands.
Nor does he sit in the seat of scoffers,
He delights in God’s law and its offers.
He meditates on the Word day and night,
With heart, mind, soul, and strength; hearing and sight.

He is like a tree planted by a stream,
Its abundant fruit is sweet as a dream.
It acts as trees ought, yields fruit when it should.
Its leaf doesn’t wither, no rot in its wood.
His justice will lead to prosperity,
But wind drives the chaff of iniquity.

Judgment is sure, and the wicked won’t stand,
From the righteous, all sinners will be banned.
“for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the wicked will perish.”
Not one is righteous, so condemned we stand,
Unless we’re forgiven by nail-scarred hands.

Do not let the serpent lie and decieve,
In love, obey and repent and believe.
Christ is the way and the truth and the life,
He will be there for your struggles and strife.
In these wondrous truths, let our hearts rejoice,
Let His sheep hear and know their Shepherd’s voice.

Cursed ’cause of our wicked and sinful ways,
Under the wrath of the Ancient of Days.
“Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree.”
Christ became a curse for you and for me.
By Jesus alone may we be set free,
Then Psalm 1 women and men we shall be.
