Words: Brady and Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David
1 The man is blest who fears the Lord, nor only worship pays, But keeps his steps confined with care to his appointed ways.
2 He shall upon the sweet returns of his own labor feed; Without dependence live, and see his wishes all succeed.
3 His wife, like a fair fertile vine, her lovely fruit shall bring; His children, like young olive plants, about his table spring.
4,5 Who fears the Lord shall prosper thus; him Zion's God shall bless, and grant him all his days to see Jerusalem's success.
6 He shall live on, till heirs from him descend with vast increase; Much blessed in his own prosp'rous state, and more in Israel's peace.
