Hymn/Song Information

Blessed are they that perfect are and




ALEPH.
Blessèd are they that perfect are,
and pure in mind and heart;
Whose lives and conversations do
from God's laws ne'er depart.


Blessèd are they that give themselves
his statutes to observe,
Seeking the Lord with all their heart,
and never from him swerve,


Doubtless such men go not astray,
nor do a wicked thing,
But steadfastly walk in his way
without any wand'ring.


'Tis thy commandment and thy will,
that with attentive heed,
Thy precepts, which are most divine,
we learn and keep indeed.


O would to God it might thee please
my ways so to direct,
That I might always keep thy laws,
and never them reject!


So shall I not ashamèd be,
whilst I thus set my eyes,
And bend my mind always to muse
on thy decrees most wise.


Then will I praise with uptight heart,,
nd magnify thy Name,
When I shall learn thy judgments just,
and also prove the same.


And wholly will I give myself
to keep thy laws most right:
Forsake me not for ever, Lord,
but show thy grace and might.
