Psalm 1

1:1 Happy is the man who does not go in the company of sinners, or take his place in the way of evil-doers, or in the seat of those who do not give honour to the Lord.

1:2 But whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and whose mind is on his law day and night.

1:3 He will be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, which gives its fruit at the right time, whose leaves will ever be green; and he will do well in all his undertakings.

1:4 The evil-doers are not so; but are like the dust from the grain, which the wind takes away.

1:5 For this cause there will be no mercy for sinners when they are judged, and the evil-doers will have no place among the upright,

1:6 Because the Lord sees the way of the upright, but the end of the sinner is destruction.

Wow! I don't know about writing a poem based on this Psalm, but wow. Thank God for Jesus, because without Him, my end would be destruction. Jesus gives me a clean slate, so I can be verses 1-3 instead of 4-6. Wow!

Thanks Helen, you are so sweet. I didn't take it as a criticism and I’m so glad you understand I am really not putting down hymns. It’s hard enough to be a Christ follower in this world; we have to be united in His name. You know different strokes for different folks. I’ve actually been humming hymns all day. :^) Actually, I was checking out your blog also. I'll keep checking to see how your doing with your poem.
love God, love others, it’s simple…
