Psalmus 1

Language: Latin

1 Beatus vir qui non abiit in consilio impiorum,
  et in via peccatorum non stetit,
  et in cathedra pestilentiæ non sedit;
2 sed in lege Domini voluntas ejus,
  et in lege ejus meditabitur die ac nocte.
3 Et erit tamquam lignum quod plantatum est secus decursus aquarum,
  quod fructum suum dabit in tempore suo: et folium ejus non defluet;
  et omnia quæcumque faciet prosperabuntur.
4 Non sic impii, non sic;
  sed tamquam pulvis quem projicit ventus a facie terræ.
5 Ideo non resurgent impii in judicio,
  neque peccatores in concilio justorum:
6 quoniam novit Dominus viam justorum,
  et iter impiorum peribit.

A Tree By the River Side

Language: English after the Latin

The man is blest that hath not lent to wicked men his ear,
nor led his life as sinners do,
nor sat in the scorner's chair.
But in the law of God the Lord doth set his whole delight,
and in the same doth exercise both day and night
He shall be like a tree that grows fast by the river side,
which bringeth pleasant fruit in due time and tide,
whose leaf shall never fade nor fall, but flourish still and stand.
So all things shall prosper well that this man takes in hand.
He shall be like a tree that grows fast by the river side, like a tree.
The way of godly men unto the Lord is known:
whereas the ways of wicked men shall be quite overthrown.
He shall be like a tree that grows fast by the river side.
The man is blest.
