Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

CXXVIII. He's trebly blest, who dreads th' omniscient God

1 He's trebly blest, who dreads th' omniscient God,
And in his perfect way with fear has trod,
2 Himself and his kind providence's care;
The produce of his hands he long shall share,
3 His wife, chaste object of his faithful loves,
Fills all his wishes, and his joys improves;
Like beauteous olives in a fruitful soil,
His children croud his board, and crown his toil.
4 Thus blest he lives--his God will still bestow;
Still from his God incessant bounties flow;
And, more t' enhance his happiness, he sees
His country blest with opulence and peace;
6 He sees his own and country's welfare join'd,
While fond parental transports fill his mind;
He sees his race of ev'ry good possest,
Thanks his kind God, and dies supremely blest.
