He's blest, whose sins have pardon gain'd

Representative Text

1 He's blest, whose sins have pardon gain'd
No more in judgment to appear,
Whose guilt remission has obtain'd
And whose repentance is sincere.

2 No sooner I my wound disclosed,
The guilt that tortured me within,
But Thy forgiveness interposed,
And mercy's healing balm pour'd in.

3 Sorrows on sorrows multiplied,
The harden'd sinner shall confound;
But them who in His truth confide,
Blessings of mercy shall surround.

4 His saints that have perform'd His laws,
Their life in triumph shall employ;
Let them, as they alone have cause,
In grateful raptures shout for joy.
