Those That Follow Thee

Blessed are those that donโ€™t follow
In the ways of the impious,
Stand in the way sinners do
Or sit in the seat of contemptuous.

Delight is in Your Law, Lord;
Joy should be found in Thee!
I Meditate day and night on Thy Word
And I shall never ever cease!

Those that follow Thee are like a tree,
Planted by the river of flowing water.
It bears fruit in its season; its leaves
Will never wither, and it shall prosper!

Wheatโ€™s chaff is the wicked and their way –
They will be blown elsewhere by the wind
They shanโ€™t outlive the judgment day –
Their unholy traditions shall perish then.


This is based heavily on the first Psalm. ๐Ÿ™‚ (Shout out to TR who just posted a summary a couple of weeks ago for this psalm!) A long time ago, I thought about writing a poem based on each psalm, but I never did. I did get to Psalm 88 (Draw Nigh!) and Psalm 96 (The Lord Of Hosts Reigns Always!) but never got much farther. Or so I thought. Turns out, I wrote this one and forgot about it. And never posted it. So here it is. ๐Ÿ™‚ Perhaps someday I will reach that goal.
