Thrice happy souls who born from Heaven




Thrice happy souls, who, born from Heav’n,
While yet they sojourn here,
Humbly begin their days with God,
|: And spend them in His fear. :|


So may our eyes with holy zeal,
Prevent the dawning day,
And turn the sacred pages o’er,
|: And praise Thy Name and pray. :|


Midst hourly cares my love presents
Its incense to Thy throne;
And while the world our hands employs,
|: Our hearts be Thine alone. :|


As sanctified to noblest ends,
By each refreshment sought,
And by each various providence,
|: Some wise instruction brought. :|


When to labourious duties called,
Or by temptations tried,
We’ll seek the shelter of thy wings,
|: And in thy strength confide. :|


As different scenes of life arise,
Our grateful hearts would be
With thee, amidst the social band,
|: In solitude with thee. :|


At night we lean our weary heads
On thy paternal breast;
And, safely folded in thine arms,
|: Resign our powers to rest. :|


In solid, pure delights like these,
Let all our days be past;
Nor shall we then impatient wish,
|: Nor shall we fear the last. :|


---Alternative verses---


In solid, pure delights like these,
Let all my days be past;
Nor shall I then impatient wish,
|: Nor shall I fear the last. :|
