Hes Blest Whose Sins Have Pardon Gained

He’s blest, whose sins have pardon gain’d
No more in judgment to appear,
Whose guilt remission has obtain’d
And whose repentance is sincere.

No sooner I my wound disclosed,
The guilt that tortured me within,
But Thy forgiveness interposed,
And mercy’s healing balm pour’d in.

Sorrows on sorrows multiplied,
The harden’d sinner shall confound;
But them who in His truth confide,
Blessings of mercy shall surround.

His saints that have perform’d His laws,
Their life in triumph shall employ;
Let them, as they alone have cause,
In grateful raptures shout for joy.
