Joy is yours

Psalm 1 

Joy is yours, my friend,
when you dismiss sinister advice,
when you choose not to walk
the path of miscreants,
not to sit with those who mock.

Joy is yours, my friend,
taking delight in the law of Love,
meditating day and night
with Holy One, with Love.

You will be like trees beside streams
that run deep; you will grow healthy fruit,
sprout rich green leaves.
Joy, deep joy, will be yours.

The miscreants will not know joy,
but will fly like chaff, useless,
carried away on the wind.
They have no roots, they cannot stand.

But you – Holy One watches over you,
and while miscreants perish,
you will know joy!
