Come to the Water

Play
Thursday of week 7 in Ordinary Time, based on Psalm 1:1-4, 6

Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.

   Happy are those
who do not follow the advice of the wicked,
or take the path that sinners tread,
or sit in the seat of scoffers;
but their delight is in the law of the LORD,
and on his law they meditate day and night.

Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.

They are like trees
planted by streams of water,
which yield their fruit in its season,
and their leaves do not wither.
In all that they do, they prosper.

Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.
 
   The wicked are not so,
but are like chaff that the wind drives away.

for the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked will perish.

  Blessed are they who hope in the Lord.
