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

Who fears the Lord bless'd man is he

Who fears the Lord bless'd man is he

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 Who fears the Lord blefs'd man is he,
Who much doth in his laws delight.
2 His seed on earth shall mighty be,
Blest shall the race be of th' upright.
3 Wealth in his house, much riches too,
His justice lasts for aye likewise.
4 Unto the upright man also
There doth in darkness light arise.
He gracious is and righteous:
And full is of compassion.

5 A good man lends and favour shews
His works guides with discretion.
6 He sure shall not be mov'd for aye:
Aye shall the just be in record.
7 Ill tidings shall not him dismay;
His heart's fixt trusting on the Lord.

8 His heart's confirm'd, he shall not fear,
Till on his foes his will he see.
9 He hath dispers'd; gives to the poor:
His righteousness for aye shall be:

His horn with honour high shall rise.
10 The lewd shall grieve, and melt away,
And gnash his teeth, when this he spies,
The wicked's wish shall quite decay.
