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.

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.
