Easy Play Psalm 112
2014 BOOK OF PRAISE OF THE CANADIAN REFORMED CHURCHES
1. Come, praise the LORD! Let all revere him.
How blessèd is the man who fears him,
who in the LORD’s commands takes pleasure.
His offspring, blest in equal measure,
will be the mighty in the nation,
a truly upright generation.
2. Abundant riches fill his dwelling;
firm stands his justice, never failing.
As after night comes morning brightness,
light dawns for him who loves uprightness;
all gloom and darkness it displaces
for the compassionate and gracious.
3. All’s well with him whose generous lending
gives joy to those on him depending;
who, his trustworthiness revealing,
lets justice govern all his dealings.
The righteous one shall never waver;
his praises will be sung forever.
4. With steadfast heart in God confiding,
he has no fear of evil tidings;
he in the end with exultation
will greet his foe’s humiliation.
His gifts he on the poor will shower;
great are his honour and his power.
5. The just will thrive in his endeavours;
his righteousness endures forever.
The wicked sees it with vexation;
his teeth he gnashes in frustration.
The schemes and hopes that he may cherish
are sure to fail and doomed to perish.
