PSALM 37:1-9
METER:  LM (88 88)
This is the meter of such hymns as "Lord, Speak to Me" and "Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow"

1.  Don't fret be-cause of wick-ed ones,
    Don't get up-set be-cause of them.
    They soon will dry up like the grass
    And like a green herb fade a-way.
2.  Trust in the Lord, and do what's good,
    And in the land you'll dwell se-cure.
    Be hap-py in the Lord, and he
    Will give you what your heart de-sires.
3.  Com-mit your way un-to the Lord,
    Trust in him, and he will help you.
    God will save you, sure as the dawn,
    And vin-di-cate sure as noon-day.
4.  Be still and wait for God to act.
    Don't fret o'er those who pros-per while
    They go a-bout and do what's wrong.
    Re-frain from an-ger and from wrath.
5.  Don't fret, it on-ly trou-ble brings.
    The wick-ed shall be driv-en out,
    But those who wait up-on the Lord
    Shall ev-er Yah-weh's land pos-sess.
