Representative Text

1 Blest who with generous pity glows,
Who learns to feel another's woes;
Bows to the poor man's wants his ear,
And wipes the helpless orphan's tear:
In every want, in every woe,
Himself thy pity, Lord, shall know.

2 Thy love his life shall guard--thy hand
Give to his lot the chosen land;
Nor leave him, in the dreadful day,
To unrelenting foes a prey.
In sickness thou shalt raise his head,
And make with tenderest care his bed.
