Sunday Hymns from the Past – Happy the Man Who Feareth God


Happy the man who feareth God,Whose feet His holy ways have trod;

Thine own good hand shall nourish thee,

And well and happy shalt thou be.

 Thy wife shall, like a fruitful vine,

Fill all thy house with clusters fine;

Thy children all be fresh and sound,

Like olive-plants thy table round.

 Lo! to the man these blessings cleave

Who in God’s holy fear doth live;

From him the ancient curse hath fled

By Adam’s race inherited.

Out of Mount Zion God shall send,

And crown with joy thy latter end;

That thou Jerusalem mayst see,

In favor and prosperity.

He shall be with thee in thy ways,

And give thee health and length of days;

Yea, thou shalt children’s children see,

And peace on Israel shall be.
