How Good and Pleasant Is the Sight

How good and pleasant is the sight
when Christians make it their delight
to live in blest accord;
such love is like anointing oil
that consecrates for holy toil
the servants of the Lord.

The Good Man's Steps Are Led Aright

The good man's steps are led aright,
His way is pleasing in God's sight,
Established it shall stand;
He shall not perish though he fall,
The mighty Lord who rules o'er all
Upholds him with His hand.

Notes

PRESSLY is one of the many (now often forgotten) hymn tunes and gospel songs composed by Charles H. Gabriel (PHH 24). With a copyright date of l901, the tune first appeared with this text in the 1912 Psalter. Sing in harmony as a testimony of our harmonious love! Well-trained choirs should lead the congregation in singing this hymn in two long lines rather than six short phrases. --Psalter Hymnal Handbook
