That man hath perfect blessedness

Meter: Appears in 26 hymnals Matching Instances: 26 Lyrics: 1 That man hath perfect blessedness who walketh not astray in counsel of ungodly men, nor stands in sinners’ way, nor sitteth in the scorner’s chair: 2 But placeth his delight upon God’s law, and meditates on his law day and night. 3 He shall be like a tree that hath been planted by a river, which in its season yields his fruit, and his leaf fadeth never: and all he doth shall prosper well. 4 The wicked are not so; but like they are unto the chaff, which wind drives to and fro. 5 In judgment therefore shall not stand such as ungodly are; nor in the assembly of the just shall wicked men appear. 6 Because the way of godly men unto the Lord is known; whereas the way of wicked men shall quite be overthrown. Scripture: Psalm 1 Used With Tune: ST PETER (REINAGLE)

Thomas Tallis

1505 - 1585 Person Name: Thomas Tallis, c.1505-1585 Composer of "TALLIS' ORDINAL" in The Book of Praise Thomas Tallis (b. Leicestershire [?], England, c. 1505; d. Greenwich, Kent, England 1585) was one of the few Tudor musicians who served during the reigns of Henry VIII: Edward VI, Mary, and Elizabeth I and managed to remain in the good favor of both Catholic and Protestant monarchs. He was court organist and composer from 1543 until his death, composing music for Roman Catholic masses and Anglican liturgies (depending on the monarch). With William Byrd, Tallis also enjoyed a long-term monopoly on music printing. Prior to his court connections Tallis had served at Waltham Abbey and Canterbury Cathedral. He composed mostly church music, including Latin motets, English anthems, settings of the liturgy, magnificats, and two sets of lamentations. His most extensive contrapuntal work was the choral composition, "Spem in alium," a work in forty parts for eight five-voice choirs. He also provided nine modal psalm tunes for Matthew Parker's Psalter (c. 1561). Bert Polman
