Blest are the souls that hear and know
That Gospel’s joyful sound;
Peace shall attend the path they go,
And light their steps surround.
Their joy shall bear their spirits up
Through their Redeemer’s name;
His righteousness exalts their hope,
Nor Satan dares condemn.
The Lord, our glory and defense,
Strength and salvation gives;
Israel, thy king for ever reigns,
Thy God for ever lives.
