PSALM 112
METER:  CM
SUGGESTED TUNES:  AZMON or ARLINGTON
This is the meter for such hymns as "O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing", "Am I a Soldier of the Cross", and "Amazing Grace."

1.  Praise God!  Those who fear him are glad,
    Who joy in his com-mands.
    Their child-ren shall rule in the land,
    In just-ice they'll be blessed.
2.  They will en-joy rich-es and wealth,
    They'll pros-per all their lives.
    Light shines in dark-ness for the good--
    Just, mer-ci-ful, and kind.
3.  Hap-py are those who free-ly lend,
    Who deal with hon-es-ty.
    Those who do good shall not be moved,
    But shall re-mem-bered be.
4.  They do not fear bad news, be-cause
    Their strong trust is in God.
    They are not wor-ried or a-fraid,
    For en-e-mies shall fall.
5.  They're just and gen-erous to the poor;
    Their hon-or shall be great.
    The wick-ed see this and they rage;
    Their hopes shall come to naught.
