Blest is the man, whose breast can move

Blest is the man, whose breast can move

Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Blest is the man, whose breast can move,
And melt with pity to the poor,
Whose soul, by sympathizing love,
Feels what his fellow-saints endure.

2 His heart contrives for their relief.
More good than his own hands can do;
He in the time of general grief
Shall find the Lord has mercy too.

3 His soul shall live secure on earth,
With secret blessings on his head,
When drouth, and pestilence, and death,
Around him multiply their dead.

4 Or if he languish on his couch
God will pronounce his sins forgiven,
Will save him with a healing touch,
Or take his willing soul to heaven.
