Hymn/Song Information

How blest the man who fears the Lord




How blest the man
who fears the Lord
And greatly loves
God’s holy will;
His children share
his great reward,
And blessings
all their days shall fill.


Abounding wealth
shall bless his home,
His righteousness
shall still endure,
To him shall light
arise in gloom,
For he is merciful and pure.


The man whose hand
the weak befriends
In judgment shall
his cause maintain;
A peace unmoved
his life attends,
And long his memory
shall remain.


Of evil tidings not afraid,
His trust is in the Lord alone;
His heart is steadfast,
undismayed,
For he shall see
his foes o’erthrown.


With kind remembrance
of the poor,
For their distress
his gifts provide;
His righteousness
shall thus endure,
His name in honor shall abide.


To shame the wicked
shall be brought,
While righteous men
shall favor gain;
Unrighteous hopes
shall come to naught,
Its due reward shall sin obtain.
