1 How blessed are those who trust in God,
delighting in his sure command;
for rich in grace will be their homes,
their children mighty in the land:

2 How happy those who freely give,
who justly deal and kindly care;
for in their darkness light shall dawn,
and long shall be their memory here:

3 How joyful those who, strong for truth,
rely upon the Lord most high;
unlike the wicked they shall live,
and lift their heads up to the sky!

4 Then praise the Lord let joyful praise
to Father, Spirit, Son be given;
to God who loved us, came to save
and fills our hearts with grace from heaven!
