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

How blest are they who love the Lord

How blest are they who love the Lord

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 How bless'd are they who love the Lord
And seek his will to do;
they have his promise and his word,
That he will love them too.

2 The Holy Spirit shall reveal
The gracious will of God--
And thus their hearts shall know and feel
The worth of Jesus' blood.

3 That which the world cannot receive,
The peace of God within;
Is the reward to all who b'lieve
And strive to conquer sin.

4 The Holy Ghost, with heav'nly grace,
And blessings from above:
Will make such hearts his dwelling place
And fill the soul with love.

5 He will for ever there abide,
To all their wants attend;
To be their counsel and their guide,
Their safe guard and their friend.

6 O happy, where such grace divine,
Can have its real abode;
O may such treasurs too be mine:
Those precious gifts of God.
