FOR THE PUBLIC SERVICES'
THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND
THE REVS. C. HESKETH, M.A,
J. JACKSON, M.A., B. S. CLARKE, M.A.,
AND B. SWIFT, L.L.B.
Note.—Some verses in the longer Psalms and Hymns are bracketed, to show that, if deemed advisable, they may be omitted without interfering with the sense; and some of the Psalms and Hymns are bracketed in more places than one, in which cases a choice is afforded as to which of the bracketed verses shall be left out, and which retained; thus preventing the necessity of always omitting the same verses.
Blessedness of the righteous.
1 How blest is he who ne'er consents
By ill advice to walk;
2 But makes the perfect law of God
His business and delight;
3 Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams,
With timely fruit doth bend, He still shall flourish, and success All his designs attend.
4 For God approves the just man's ways,
To happiness they tend;
