Happy they who trust in Jesus Sweet




Happy they who trust in Jesus!
Sweet their portion is, and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
He will keep His own secure:
|:Happy people!:|
Happy, though despised and poor.


Since His love and mercy found us,
We are precious in His sight;
Thousands now may fall around us,
Thousands more be put to flight;
|:But His presence:|
Keeps us safe by day and night.


Lo! Our Saviour never slumbers;
Ever watchful is His care:
Though we cannot boast of numbers,
In His strength secure we are:
|:Sweet their portion:|
Who the Saviourís kindness share!


As the bird, beneath her feathers,
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His children gathers,
Spreads His wings and hides them there:
|:Thus protected:|
All their foes they boldly dare.
