Responsive ReadingThe Way of the Righteous ManPsalm 1LEADER: Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of theungodly,Nor stands in the path of sinners,Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;CONGREGATION: But his delight is in the law of the LORD,And in His law he meditates day and night.LEADER: He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,That brings forth its fruit in its season,CONGREGATION: Whose leaf also shall not wither;And whatever he does shall prosper.LEADER:The ungodly are not so,But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.CONGREGATION: Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in thejudgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.TOGETHER: For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,But the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Godly MenWritten by Ronnie EnochMen worshipping togetherGiving God His dueWanting change for the betterBy embracing what's trueThe transformation of a manFrom darkness to the marvelous lightGives him the strength to standFor his struggle's an internal fightPraising together one and allTaking it all to God in prayerGiving him the courage to stand tallThis is a spectacle so very rareHe's the head of his domainAccountable to God for allThere are things which he must abstainOr else, he's most certain to fallThank God for men with visionTo see a thing through to the endHelping others to make the right decisionSo they won't make the same mistakes againSo much to be thankful forSince this world's almost at its endYet we can still walk through salvation's doorBecause we need more godly men
