Blessed Be...

    In worship a few Sundays ago, the Chancel Choir sang a beautiful anthem that to my mind in the moment said a prayer I had for all my parishioners - that such sords might be able to be said about them.  Here are the lyrics.  It is “Psalm 1,” by Mark Hayes.

 

Blessed are the ones who delight in the law of the Lord.

On God’s law they meditate day and night.

They are like a tree, planted by the water, which yields its fruit in season,

who leaf shall never wither,

And all they do shall prosper.

Blessed are the ones who do not walk in the counsel of the wicked.

Or sit in the seat of mockers, for they delight in the law of the Lord.

Blessed are the ones who delight in the law of the Lord.

Pastor Walt
