Hymn/Song Information

The man is blest whose wickedness the

The man is blest, whose wickedness
the Lord forgiven hath;
And he whose sin is likewise hid
and covered from his wrath.

And blest is he to whom the Lord
imputeth not his sin,
Who in his heart hath hid no guile,
nor fraud is found therein.

For whilst that I kept close my sin
in silence and constraint,
My bones did wear and waste away
with daily moan and plaint.

Both night and day thy hand on me
so grievous was and smart,
My moisture like the summer's heat
to dryness did convert.

I did therefore confess my faults,
and all my sins reveal
Then thou, O Lord, didst me forgive,
and all my sins conceal.

The humble man shall pray therefore,
and seek thee in due time,
so that the floods of waters great
shall have no pow'r on him.

When trouble and adversity
do compass me about,
Thou art my refuge and my joy,
and thou didst rid me out.

Come hither, and I will thee teach
how thou shalt walk aright;
I will thee guide, as I myself
have learned by proof and sight.

Be not so rude and ignorant,
as is the horse and mule,
Whose mouth without a rein or bit,
from harm thou canst not rule.

The wicked man shall manifold
sorrows and grief sustain;
But unto him that trusts in God
his goodness shall remain.

Be merry therefore in the Lord,
ye just, lift up your voice;
And ye of pure and perfect heart,
with cheerfulness rejoice.
