Psalm 1: The Choice

1
There is a place of blessing
Away from the darkened paths
Away from the sinners hostel
Away from the laughing hoards

2
A place of blessing
Where rules and advice are laid
That light up the day with the morning sun
And bring comfort and warmth as evening draws near

3
To stay in that place
Is like sheltering under the branches
Of the river-side tree, laden with juicy fruit
Thriving

4
To move away is to be vulnerable
To the changing of the season
The winds blowing to and fro
Gradually removing any foundation for joy

5
And in that vulnerability
Without protection, shelter or satisfaction
Their eternal choice will be made clear
And a tear rolls down the face of Rule-Maker

6
For Rule-Maker watches everything
Rule-Maker watches everyone
And though he knows which way is best
He lets us choose.
