Psalm 119 part 1

 The blessedness of saints, and misery of sinners.
1-3 Blest are the undefiled in heart, Whose ways are right and clean; Who never from thy law depart, But fly from every sin.
Blest are the men that keep thy word, And practise thy commands; With their whole heart they seek the Lord, And serve thee with their hands.
165 Great is their peace who love thy law; How firm their souls abide! Nor can a bold temptation draw Their steady feet aside.
6 Then shall my heart have inward joy, And keep my face from shame, When all thy statutes I obey, And honor all thy name.
21,118 But haughty sinners God will hate, The proud shall die accursed; The sons of falsehood and deceit Are trodden to the dust.
119,155 Vile as the dross the wicked are; And those that leave thy ways Shall see salvation from afar, But never taste thy grace.
