Verse 1
    Am            C          G                        D
The LORD will not suffer the soul of the righteous to famish,
    Am              C        G                D
But righteousness delivereth, delivereth from death.
Am              C      G           D
Blessings are upon the head of the just:
    Am            C               G            D       D
The memory of the just is blessed, the just is blessed.


Chorus
    C               G               D
The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, 
    C            G           D  D
And he addeth no sorrow with it.


Verse 2
Am              C        G            D
He that walketh uprightly walketh surely:
    Am         C            G             D
The mouth of a righteous man is a well of life:
Am            C        G                  D
Love covereth all sins, love covereth all sins.
    Am            C        G           D    D
The labour of the righteous tendeth to life:


Verse 3
Am           C          G               D
He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction:
    Am            C         G          D
The tongue of the just is as choice silver:
    Am            C         G            D
The desire of the righteous shall be granted.
    Am              C          G      D    D
The righteous is an everlasting foundation.

Verse 4
    Am          C       G       D
The fear of the LORD prolongeth days:
    Am          C        G             D
The hope of the righteous shall be gladness:
    Am         C       G               D
The way of the LORD is strength to the upright:
    Am              C        G           D     D
The righteous shall never be, never be removed:
