O be joyful
How blest is he who ne'er consents
Nor stands in sinners' ways, nor sits
But makes the perfect law of God
His business and delight; 675 6 Devoutly reads therein by day, sols OT And meditates by night.
Like some fair tree, which, fed by streams,
With timely fruit does bend,
He still shall flourish, and success
All his designs attend.
For God approves the just man's ways,
But sinners, and the paths they tread,
LORD, hear the voice of my complain+
Thou in the morn my voice shalt hea
And with the dawning day, To thee devoutly I'll look up,
To thee devoutly pray.
To righteous men the righteous Lord
His blessing will extend;
And with his favour all his saints
O THOU, to whom all Creatures bow
Thro' all the world how great art thou!
In Heav'n thy wond'rous acts are sung,
And yet thou mak'st the infant tongue,
Thro' thee the weak confound the strong, And crush their haughty foes,
And so thou quell'st the wicked throng, That thee and thine oppose.
To celebrate thy praise, O Lord,
I will my heart prepare;
