Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

362. O People Blest, Whose Sons in Youth

1 O people blest, whose sons in youth,
in sturdy strength and noble truth,
like plants in vigor spring;
whose daughters fair, a queenly race,
are like the cornerstones that grace
the palace of a king,
the palace of a king.

2 O people blest, when flock and field
their rich, abundant increase yield,
and blessings multiply;
when plenty all thy children share,
and no invading foe is there,
and no distressful cry,
and no distressful cry.

3 O happy people, favored land,
to whom the Lord with lib'ral hand
has thus his goodness shown;
yea, surely is that people blest
by whom Jehovah is confessed
to be their God alone,
to be their God alone.
