From Psalm 37
Tune: Frances 8 8 6 D
Composer: James McGranahan, 1840-1907
1 Fret not thyself, nor envious be,
When wicked workers thou shalt see,
Who prosper in their way;
For like the grass they perish soon,
And, like the herb cut down at noon,
They wither in a day.
2 Trust in the Lord and still do well,
Within the land securely dwell,
Feed on His faithfulness;
Delight you also in the Lord,
And to your heart He will bestow
The good it would possess.
3 Yes, to the Lord your way is known;
Confide in Him Who on the throne
Abides in power divine;
Thy righteousness He shall display;
Resplendent as the light of day,
It shall unclouded shine.
