The Good Man's Steps Are Led Aright

Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 5 hymnals Lyrics: 1 The good man's steps are led aright, His way is pleasing in God's sight, Established it shall stand; He shall not perish though he fall, The mighty Lord, who rules o'er all, Upholds him with His hand. 2 Though I am old who young have been, No saint have I forsaken seen, Nor yet his home in need; He ever lends in gracious ways, His life true charity displays, His sons are blest indeed. 3 Depart from evil, do thou well, And evermore securely dwell; Jehovah loves the right. His faithfulness His saints have proved, Forever they shall stand unmoved, But sinners God will smite. 4 The righteous, through His favoring hand, Shall yet inherit all the land And dwell therein for aye; He talks of wisdom and of right, In God's pure law is his delight, His steps go not astray. 5 The wicked, watching for their prey, Desire the righteous man to slay, But God is on his side; He will not leave him in their hands, Nor count him guilty when he stands In judgment to be tried. 6 Wait on the Lord and keep His way; He will exalt thee, nor delay To give the land to thee; And when the wicked are cut off, The wicked who against thee scoff, Their judgment thou shalt see. 7 The wicked in great power are seen, Like spreading tree with foliage green That grows in native ground. I looked again, they were no more; I sought the men so proud before, But they could not be found. 8 Mark thou the upright day by day, Behold the perfect in his way, His journey ends in peace. Destroyed at once shall rebels be; Cut off from all posterity, Their very name shall cease. 9 Salvation is from God alone, Whom as their covert saints have known When by sore troubles tried; The Lord, who helped in troubles past, Will save them to the very last, For they in Him confide.

Thou Art My God, O God of Grace

Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 5 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Thou art my God, O God of grace, And earnestly I seek Thy face, My heart cries out for Thee; My spirit thirsts Thy grace to taste, An exile in this desert waste In which no waters be, In which no waters be. 2 I long as in the times of old Thy power and glory to behold Within Thy holy place; Because Thy tender love I see, More precious far than life to me, My lips shall praise Thy grace, My lips shall praise Thy grace. 3 Thus will I bless Thee while I live, And with uplifted hands will give Praise to Thy holy Name; When by Thy bounty well supplied, Then shall my soul be satisfied, My mouth shall praise proclaim, My mouth shall praise proclaim. 4 My lips shall in Thy praise delight When on my bed I rest at night And meditate on Thee; Because Thy hand assistance brings, Beneath the shadow of Thy wings My heart shall joyful be, My heart shall joyful be.

Blest Be the Lord, My Rock, My Might

Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 4 hymnals Lyrics: 1 Blest be the Lord, my rock, my might, My constant Helper in the fight, My shield, my righteousness, My strong high tower, my Savior true, Who doth my enemies subdue, My shelter in distress. 2 Lord, what is man, what has he wrought, The son of man, that in Thy thought To hold him Thou shouldst deign? For man is like a breath, a sight, His days on earth as quickly fly As shadows o'er the plain. 3 Lord, how Thy heavens, in might descend, Touch Thou the hills, the mountains rend, And they shall smoke and flame; As arrows send Thy lightnings out to put Thy enemies to rout, And fill Thy foes with shame. 4 Stretch forth Thy hand and rescue me From trouble's dark and raging sea, And from the alien throng, Whose mouth but vanity doth speak, Whose hand of strength against the weak Is filled with craft and wrong. 5 Now will I sing a glad new song, Thy praise, O God, I will prolong, For Thou hast heard my prayer; Salvation Thou dost give to kings, Thy own dost keep, with sheltering wings, From hurtful sword and snare. 6 O Thou to Whom in trust I flee, Stretch forth Thy hand and rescue me From all the alien throng, Whose mouth but vanity doth speak, Whose hand of strength against the weak Is filled with craft and wrong.

A Little That the Righteous Hold

Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 5 hymnals Lyrics: 1 A little that the righteous hold Is better far than wealth untold Of many wicked men; Destroyed shall be their arm of pride, But they who in the Lord confide Shall be upholden then. 2 He knows the days the perfect live, To them a heritage will give Which ever shall abide; In evil times no shame they know, And in the days of famine's woe They shall be satisfied. 3 Although the wicked prospered seem, At last they vanish like a dream And perish in a day; Jehovah's foes shall soon appear Like fields once fair, now brown and sere; Like smoke they fade away. 4 They borrow oft and pay not back, But righteous men do nothing lack, And give with gracious hand; Those cursed by Him shall be destroyed, But such as have His grace enjoyed, They shall possess the land Topics: Punishment Of The Wicked; Rewards of Righteousness; Righteous And Wicked Contrasted; Vanity Of Riches Scripture: Psalm 37 Used With Tune: RAMOTH

How Blest Are Hearts, Which Christ The Lord

Author: Christopher Wordsworth Meter: 8.8.6 D Appears in 1 hymnal Lyrics: 1 How blest are hearts, which Christ the Lord Has joined, as with a silver cord, In spousal unity; And animated are with love, And inspirations from above, O Holy Ghost, by Thee! 2 When angels sang creation’s birth, Man, fashioned from the dust of earth, In Eden was alone; But God made Eve from Adam’s side, And brought her to him as a bride, And willed them to be one. 3 O holy wedlock, ratified In Heav’n; a knot for ever tied By God in paradise; O happiness beyond compare, What tongues of angels to declare Thy blessedness suffice? 4 Anthems angelical were heard, When Christ, the Everlasting Word, To wed His spouse did come, And take His consecrated bride, Cleansed by the life-blood from His side, Unto His heav’nly home. 5 At Cana’s feast, that heav’nly Guest Did first His Godhead manifest, And water change to wine; In wedlock, tears of sorrowing earth Are changed to wine of heav’nly mirth, By power and love divine. 6 Mirrored in nuptial purity The marriage of the Church we see, And Christ the Bridegroom’s love; Angels look down, and anthems sing, The Holy Dove, with golden wing, Sheds blessings from above. 7 Bless, ever bless, Thy servants, Lord, Whom Thou dost join in sweet accord. The bridegroom and the bride; In sorrow, sickness, and in health, In tribulation and in wealth, Be Thou their help and guide. 8 Be with them, Lord, as day by day They with one heart together pray, Thy Word together read, Together at Thine altar kneel, And with Thy blood their union seal, On Thee together feed. 9 May they for ever have Thee near, Making them to Thyself more dear, And each to each in Thee; So, when from earthly cares released, May they at Thine own marriage feast Be blest eternally. 10 To Father, whose paternal love Sends benedictions from above, Eternal praises be; And God the Son, Incarnate Word, With Holy Spirit, be adored; One God and Persons Three.
