Psalm 112

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 90 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 112 First Line: Happy is he that fears the Lord Lyrics: Happy is he that fears the Lord, And follows his commands; Who lends the poor without reward, Or gives with lib'ral hands. As pity dwells within his breast To all the sons of need; So God shall answer his request With blessings on his seed. No evil tidings shall surprise His well-established mind; His soul to God his refuge flies, And leaves his fears behind. In times of general distress Some beams of light shall shine, To show the world his righteousness, And give him peace divine. His works of piety and love Remain before the Lord; Honor on earth and joys above Shall be his sure reward.

Psalm 112

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 65 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 112 First Line: Thrice happy man who fears the Lord Lyrics: Thrice happy man who fears the Lord, Loves his commands, and trusts his word; Honor and peace his days attend, And blessings to his seed descend. Compassion dwells upon his mind, To works of mercy still inclined; He lends the poor some present aid, Or gives them, not to be repaid. When times grow dark, and tidings spread That fill his neighbors round with dread, His heart is armed against the fear, For God with all his power is there. His soul, well fixed upon the Lord, Draws heav'nly courage from his word; Amidst the darkness light shall rise, To cheer his heart and bless his eyes. He hath dispersed his alms abroad; His works are still before his God; His name on earth shall long remain, While envious sinners fret in vain.

Psalm 112

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.8.8.8.8.8 Appears in 29 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 112 First Line: That man is blest who stands in awe Lyrics: That man is blest who stands in awe Of God, and loves his sacred law: His seed on earth shall be renowned; His house the seat of wealth shall be, An inexhausted treasury, And with successive honors crowned. His lib'ral favors he extends, To some he gives, to others lends; A gen'rous pity fills his mind: Yet what his charity impairs, He saves by prudence in affairs And thus he's just to all mankind. His hands, while they his alms bestowed, His glory's future harvest sowed; The sweet remembrance of the just, Like a green root, revives and bears A train of blessings for his heirs, When dying nature sleeps in dust. Beset with threat'ning dangers round, Unmoved shall he maintain his ground; His conscience holds his courage up: The soul that's filled with virtue's light, Shines brightest in affliction's night, And sees in darkness beams of hope. [Ill tidings never can surprise His heart that fixed on God relies, Though waves and tempests roar around: Safe on the rock he sits, and sees The shipwreck of his enemies, And all their hope and glory drowned. The wicked shall his triumph see, And gnash their teeth in agony, To find their expectations crossed; They and their envy, pride, and spite, Sink down to everlasting night, And all their names in darkness lost.] Topics: Blessings of a person; Charity and justice; Good Works; Poor charity to them; Charity to the poor; Liberality rewarded; Preservation in public dangers
