Representative Text

1 Oh, greatly blest the people are
the joyful sound that know;
in brightness of thy face, O Lord,
they ever on shall go.

2 They in thy name shall all the day
rejoice exceedingly;
and in thy righteousness shall they
exalted be on high.

3 For God is our defence; and he
to us doth safety bring:
the Holy One of Israel
is our almighty King.
