Psalm 1, (That Man Hath Perfect Blessedness), by Brian Sauvé

If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of listening to Brian Sauvé’s hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs… you’re welcome!

This is a wonderful rendering of Psalm 1, an expectation-setting introduction to the book of Psalms (note the Genesis-laden language):

Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, 
nor stands in the way of sinners, 
nor sits in the seat of scoffers; 
 but his delight is in the law of the Lord, 
and on his law he meditates day and night. 
 He is like a tree 
planted by streams of water 
that yields its fruit in its season, 
and its leaf does not wither. 
In all that he does, he prospers. 
 The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away. 
 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, 
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous; 
 for the Lord knows the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.
