Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Happy are they and truly blest

Representative Text

1 Happy are they and truly bless'd,
Who have the Saviours mind;
Whose hearts are with his love possess'd,
Which makes them meek and kind.

2 They follow Jesus in his way,
And bear with each assault;
Like Jesus for their foes they pray,
And pardon every fault.

3 Such counsels as the Lord doth give,
They ardently persue:
And by his precepts seek to live,
In all they say or do.

4 In all their lives they keep a guard,
And flee from every ill--
Their constant pray'rs are to the Lord:
Teach us to know thy will.

5 To live in peace is their desire,
Real happiness to see;
They guard their tongues, as needs require
From vain discourses free.

6 The Lord to such is ever near,
He guards them with his eyes--
And when distress'd his gracious ear,
Is open to their cries.
