Psalm 112

87.87 Acrostic in the Hebrew; set in a metrical English acrostic form here.

1All praise to the Lord Almighty;
Bless’d are those who fear His name.
Come and revel in His statutes;
Delight in His righteous fame!

2Every child of God Almighty,
Filled with blessing and set free;
Generations of the upright,
Happy, holy, they shall be!

3In His house they’ll find true riches;
Joy and righteousness endure.
4Kindled light into the darkness,
Love and mercy evermore!

5Mighty is the one who’s gen’rous,
Never failing to be just;
6Openhearted, never shaken,
Praise is his e’en from the dust!

7Quiet trust despite bad tidings,
Resolute in all he does.
8Steady is his fearless stature,
Triumphing o’er all his foes!

9Upright, just, he gives so freely,
Visiting the poor with food;
With his righteousness enduring,
eXalted in honor, good!

10Yes, the wicked man will see, and
in his anger, gnash his teeth.
Zeal for right will be exalted
when his ending is complete!
