Scripture Verse

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in His law doth he meditate day and night. Psalm 1:1–2

If you know where to get a good pho­to of Stark (head-and-shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els), would you ?


Happy he who walketh ever
In the ways of God, our Lord;
Happy he who sinneth never
’Gainst the teachings of His Word;
Whose delight is Him to serve,
Day by day and year by year;
From His precepts ne’er to swerve;
Unto peace shall he be near.

He shall flourish like a flower,
Planted by the waterside;
God will give him grace and power,
In his virtue to abide.
By the help of God, most tender,
Shall he prosper in his ways;
Virtue shall be his defender,
Blessèd shall be all his days.
