Psalm 32

Words: The Psalter Hymnal

7,6 7,6 D  
In "The Psalter Hymnal," these words are sung to:
  "Rutherford" - Arranged by E.F. Rimbault, 1867

   1  How blest is he whose trespass
         Has freely been forgiven,
      whose sin is wholly covered
         Before the sight of heaven.
      Blest he to whom Jehova 
         Will not impute his sin,
      Who has a guileless spirit,
         Whose heart is true within.

   2  While I kept guilty silence 
         My strength was spent with grief,
      Thy hand was heavy on me,
         My soul found no relief;
      But when I owned my trespass,
         My sin hid not from Thee,
      When I confessed transgression,
         Then Thou forgavest me.

   3  So let the godly seek Thee,
         In times when Thou art near;
      No whelming floods shall reach them,
         Nor cause their hearts fo fear.
      In thee, O Lord, I hide me,
         Thou savest me from ill,
      And songs of Thy salvation
         My heart with rapture thrill.

   4  I graciously will teach thee
         The way that thou shalt go,
      And with Mine eye upon thee
         My counsel make thee know.
      But be ye not unruly,
         Or slow to understand,
      Be not perverse, but willing
         To heed My wise command.

   5  The sorrows of the wicked
         In number shall abound
      But those that trust Jehovah,
         His mercy shall surround.
      Then in the Lord be joyful
         In song lift up your voice;
      Be glad in God, ye righteous,
         Rejoice, ye saints, rejoice!
