How Blest Are They How Truly Wise
How blest are they, how truly wise,
Who learn and keep the sacred road!
Happy the men whom Heav’n employs
To turn rebellious hearts to God!
While these declare the written word
And prove their doctrine from the Lord,
To him, in them respect we’ll pay
And bless the doctrines they convey.
Let them instruct we would be wise;
Their just reproofs we’ll not despise;
But meet with love their faithful cares,
And joy with them our fervent prayers.
May peace from heav’n upon them rest,
And be their labours greatly blest,
To save from sin, sad hearts relieve-
And may they share the joys they give.
