A Song of Degrees

O blest is every one

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 O blest is ev'ry one
That doth Jehovah fear,
That walks his ways along
2 For thou shalt eat with cheer
Thy hands labour
Blest shalt thou be, it well with thee
Shalt be therefore.

3 Thy wife like fruitful vine
Shall be by thine house side.
The children that be thine,
Like Olive plants abide
About thy board:
4 Behold, thus blest that man doth rest
Who fears the Lord,

5 The Lord from Sion bless
Thee shall, and thou shalt see
Jerusalem's success
Ail thy life's days that be.
6 Yea shalt view well
Thy children then with their children,
Peace on Isra'l.
