Hymn/Song Information

Blessed are they to whom the Lord as God




Bless-ed are they to whom the Lord
as God and guide is known,
Whom he doth choose of mere accord,
to take them as his own.


The Lord from heav'n did cast his sight
on men mortal by birth,
Beholding from his seat of might
the dwellers on the earth:


The Lord, I say, whose hand hath wrought
man's heart, and doth it frame,
'Tis he alone doth know the thought
and working of the same.


A king that trusteth in his host,
shall naught prevail at length;
A man that of his might doth boast,
shall fail for all his strength.


The troops of horsemen all shall fail,
their sturdy steeds shall swerve;
The strength of horse shall not prevail
the rider to preserve.


But lo, the eyes of God attend
and watch to aid the just,
With such as fear him to offend,
and on his goodness trust:


That he of death and great distress
may set their souls from dread;
And if that dearth their land oppress,
in hunger them to feed.


Wherefore our soul doth whole depend
on God our strength and stay;
He is our shield us to defend,
and drive all darts away.


Our joyful souls alway proclaim
his power and his might:
For why? in hiz most holy Name
we hope and much delight.


Therefore let thy goodness, O Lord,
still present with us be,
As we always with one accord
do only trust in thee.
