They Are Blest Who Are Forgiven
Words: Anonymous, based on portions of Psalm 32.
1 They are blest who are forgiven, to whom God imputes no sin [Who go to the Eternal and confess to him their sins] Whose iniquity is covered, whom the Lord does instruct! Saying I will direct you in the way that you should go. 2 Many sorrows have the wicked, [Who know not the way of God.] Be not as mules or horses, Which are held by bridles strong; But be glad in the Eternal, And rejoice all you just; Shout for joy all you upright; In whose spirit is no guile. 3 Day and night God's hand was on me, And I groaned till I confessed. My sins I laid before Him Quickly He forgave them all. Ev'ry godly one shall pray thus, While the Lord may be found; So be glad all you upright; All you righteous shout for joy.
