What man is he that feareth the Lord? Him shall He teach in the way that He shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.@Psalm 25:12-13

From The Psalter (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: United Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1912), number 62.

George F. Handel (1685-1759)

The man that fears the Lord
God’s way shall understand;
His soul shall ever dwell at ease,
His children rule the land.

The friendship of the Lord
Is ever with His own,
And unto those that fear His name
His faithfulness is shown.

My eyes are evermore
Toward Thee, O Lord, whose care
Shall surely save my heedless feet
From every hidden snare.

O turn to me Thy face,
To me Thy mercy show,
For I am very desolate
And brought exceeding low.
