Blest the Man That Fears Jehovah

Representative Text

1 Blest the man that fears Jehovah,
walking ever in his ways,

olive plants, in strength and beauty,

4 Lo, on him that fears Jehovah

5 You shall see God's kingdom prosper
all your days, till life shall cease,
you shall see your children's children;
on your people, Lord, be peace.
