14. O blessed souls are they

O blessed souls are they,
whose sins are covered o’er!
Divinely blest, to whom the Lord
imputes their guilt no more!

They mourn their follies past,
and keep their hearts with care;
their lips and lives, without deceit,
shall prove their faith sincere.

Let sinners learn to pray;
let saints keep near the throne.
Our help in times of deep distress
is found in God alone.
