Come, let us praise the Lord, He's blessed the Lord that fears

Come, let us praise the Lord, He's blessed the Lord that fears

Full Text

1. Come, let us praise the Lord:
He's blessed the Lord that fears;
Whose heart the greatest love,
To his commandments bears.
2. His seed renowned,
On earth, shall be;
His progeny
With blessings crowned.

3. His house with wealth shall flow;
His justice never fails.
4. The light shall on him shine,
When earkness most prevails.
His gentle mind
The poor's grief feels,
He justly deals
With all mankind.

5. A good man favor shows,
And lends, nor hopes for gain;
His business wisely guides;
6. He shall unmoved remain
The just man's name,
With fragrance, shall,
Through ages all,
Still live in fame.

7. No evil tidings shall,
His mind, with fear, surprise,
His heart is firmly fixed,
And on the Lord relies;
8. With sweet repose,
Fearless, to see
The high decree,
Seize on his foes.

9. He wide dispersed his alms,
And gave the poor supplies;
His righteousness shall last,
His horn, in glory, rise.
10. sinners shall see,
Grieve, gnash, and pine,
But their design
Shall blasted be.
