Poem Adapted from The First Psalm by Earl Ray Brewster

First Psalm Poem – Earl Ray Brewster

Happy is He who walketh not nor stands
With ungodly or with sinful men –
But delights in God’scommands,
No sitteth in the mourner’s seat again.

This law consumes both night & Day –
So like a sturdy tree He is
that bringeth forth His fruit alway
–A wonderful Law of life is this

His leaf shall never withered be
He prospers in what He does alway
But the ungodly – God cannot see
For they’re like chaff which wind drives away

So the ungodly shall not in judgement stand
Nor sinners in the righteous congregation
The way of the righteous doth God understand
but the ungodly shall receive damnation.
