Hymn/Song Information

Blessed is the man whom thou O Lord in

Blessed is the man, whom thou, O Lord,
in kindness dost chastise,
And by thy sacred rules to walk
dost lovingly advise.

This man shall rest and safety find
in seasons of distress,
Whilst God prepares a pit for those
that stubbornly transgress.

For God will never from his saints
his favor wholly take;
His own possession and his lot
he will not quite forsake.

The world shall then confess thee just
in all that thou hast done;
And those that choose thy upright ways
shall in those paths go on.

Who will appear in my behalf
when wicked men invade?
Or who, when sinners would oppress,
my righteous cause shall plead?

Long since had I in silence slept,
but that the Lord was near,
To stay me when I slipped: when sad,
my troubled heart to cheer.

Wilt thou, who art a God most just,
their sinful throne sustain,
Who make the law a fair pretence
their wicked ends to gain?

Against the lives of righteous men
they form their close design;
And, blood of innocents to spill,
in solemn league combine.

But my defense is firmly placed
in God the Lord most high;
He is my rock, to which I may
for refuge always fly.

The Lord shall cause their ill designs
on their own heads to fall;
He in their sins shall cut them off,
our God shall slay them all.
