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.

Thrice blest are all that fear the Lord

Representative Text

1. Thrice blessed are all that fear the Lord
And walk in his pure ways.
2. Thy labor shall supply thy wants;
And prosper all thy days.
3. Thy wife, a lovely fruitful vine,
By thy house sides, shall grow;
Thy children, round thy table set,
Like olive plants shall show.

4. Behold; thus shall the nan be blest,
That doth Jehovah fear!
5. The Lord, who dwells on Sion hill,
Shall bless thee every where;
Thou, all thy days, with joy, shall see
Jerusalem's happy state:
6. Behold thy children's children rise,
And peace on Israel wait.
