Lord who's the happy man that may to thy




Lord, who's the happy man that may
to thy blest courts repair?
Not, stranger-like, to visit them,
but to inhabit there?


'Tis he, whose ev'ry thought and deed
by rules of virtue moves;
Whose gen'rous tongue disdains to speak
the thing his heart disproves.


Who never did a slander forge
his neighbor's fame to wound;
Nor hearken to a false report,
by malice whispered round.


Who vice, in all its pomp and pow'r,
can treat with just neglect;
And piety, thought clothed in rags,
religiously respect.


Who to his plighted vows and trust
has ever firmly stood;
And, though he promise to his loss,
he makes his promise good.


Whose soul in usury disdains
his treasure to employ;
Who no rewards can ever bribe
the guiltless to destroy.


The man, who by this steady course
has happiness insured,
When earth's foundation shakes, shall stand,
by Providence secured.
