LYRICS:

Psalm 37, put to music.

 

You will again distinguish

Between the righteous and the wicked

Between the one who serves God

And one who does not

Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him

Don’t fret when the wicked prosper

When they carry out their evil schemes

 

The wicked plots against the righteous

And gnashes all his teeth

The Lord sits in the heavens and laughs at him

For He sees his day is coming

 

Delight yourself in God Most High

And He will give you the desires of your heart

Trust Him, don’t grow weary of doing good

When you fall you’ll not be hurled headlong

Commit your way to God and cultivate faithfulness

He will bring forth your righteousness

Like the light of daytime

The wicked plots against the righteous

And gnashes all his teeth

The Lord sits in the heavens and laughs at him

For He sees his day is coming

 

Yet a little while and the wicked will be no more

You’ll look for him but you’ll not find him there

But the steps of the righteous God has established from long, long ago

And the humble inherit, they inherit the land

The Lord is their strength and brings deliverance

Because in Him they seek refuge

Better is the little that the righteous have now

Than the abundance of the wicked which will fade away

The wicked plots against the righteous

And gnashes all his teeth

The Lord sits in the heavens and laughs at him

For He sees his day is coming

 

I once was young and now I’m old

Yet I have never seen the righteous man forsaken

I’ve never seen him begging bread

For God loves justice and preserves him forever

Wait for the Lord and keep His way

Wait for the Lord and keep His way

Wait for the Lord and keep His way

Watch and see the outcome of the upright
