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

Representative Text

1 That man is bless'd who stands in awe
Of God, and loves his sacred law:
His seed on earth shall be renown'd,
And with successive honours crown'd.

2 His house, the seat of wealth shall be
An inexhausted treasury;
His justice, free from all decay,
Shall blessings to his heirs convey.

3 The soul that's fill'd with virtue's light,
Shines brightest in affliction's night:
To pity the distress'd inclin'd,
As well as just to all mankind.

4 His lib'ral favours he extends,
To some he gives, to others lends:
Yet what his charity impairs
He saves by prudence in affairs.

5 Beset with threat'ning dangers round,
Unmov'd shall he maintain his ground:
The sweet remembrance of the just
Shall flourish when he sleeps in dust.

6 Ill tidings never can surprize
His heart that fix'd on God relies:
On safety's rock he sits, and sees
The shipwreck of his enemies.

7 His hands, while they his alms bestow'd,
His glory's future harvest sow'd,
His works of piety and love,
Are known on earth, and own'd above.

8 The wicked shall his triumph see,
And gnash their teeth in agony;
While their unrighteous hopes decay,
And vanish with themselves away.
