11007. How Blest The Children Of The Lord

1 How blest the children of the Lord,
Who, walking in His sight,
Make all the precepts of His word,
Their study and delight.

2 That precious wealth shall be their dower,
Which cannot know decay;
Which moth or rust shall ne’er devour,
Nor spoiler take away.

3 For them that heavenly light shall spread,
Whose cheering rays illume
The darkest hours of life, and shed
A halo round the tomb.

4 Their works of piety and love,
Performed through Christ their Lord,
Forever registered above,
Shall meet a sure reward.
