Psalm 37--The Heritage of the Righteous

Psalm 37:1-11

Don’t let the success of the evil man
Take away your peace and joy,
For there is nothing one can possess
That will not be destroyed.

The believer shall trust in the Lord alone;
It is He who has determined your place.
This shall become your blessing zone
As you surrender and seek His face.

Commit your future and all your dreams
To the Lord who observes in love.
Your life will radiate like a beam
As bright as the sun above.

Be still and patient, pray for God’s will;
Don’t faint when evil succeeds,
For there is an awful eternal bill
Coming due for all wicked deeds.

Control your anger; turn away from wrath,
Submit to God’s best plan.
The wicked now walk their chosen path,
But you will inherit the land.

It won’t be long and the end will come;
The wicked will not be found.
To God’s judgment they will succumb,
But you will wear heaven’s crown.

Do you desire the Lord’s salvation
And acknowledge your selfish sin?
Heaven will be your destination
If you place your trust in Him.
