1. Wick-ed ones bor-row, but don’t pay back,
Gen-‘rous and giv-ing are the right-eous ones;
Those the Lord bless-es re-ceive the land,
But those God curs-es shall be cut off.
God makes our steps firm when we please him;
E’en when we stum-ble, we shall not fall
Flat on our fac-es, for the Lord God
Holds us se-cure-ly with his own hands.
2. All through my life I nev-er have seen
Just ones for-sak-en and beg-ging for bread.
Just ones give free-ly, will-ing to lend;
They teach their child-ren oth-ers to bless.
De-part from e-vil, al-ways do good,
So you shall al-ways live in the Lord.
The Lord loves just-ice; nev-er wil he
For-sake those who are faith-ful to him.
