LITANY 
LEADER: Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers
PEOPLE: but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night.
LEADER: ” at person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever they do prospers.
PEOPLE: Not so the wicked! they are like chaff that the wind blows away.
LEADER: Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
PEOPLE: For the Lord watches over the way of the righteous, but the way of the wicked leads to destruction.
