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.
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
Ail thy life's days that be.
6 Yea shalt view well
Thy children then with their children,
Peace on Isra'l.
