Gregory Wilbur - DISTRESS (Blest is the man)

from Hollow Square Hymnal by Cardiphonia Music



Tune: DISTRESS, 1835, adapted Gregory Wilbur, 2008
Text: Isaac Watts, 1719 Blest is the Man (Psalm 32)


1 Blest is the man, forever blest,
Whose guilt is pardoned by his God,
Whose sins with sorrow are confessed
And covered with his Savior's blood.

2 Blest is the man to whom the Lord
Imputes not his iniquities;
He pleads no merit of reward
And not on works but grace relies.

3 From guile his heart and lips are free;
His humble joy, his holy fear,
With deep repentance well agree
And join to prove his faith sincere.

4 How glorious is that righteousness
That hides and cancels all his sins,
While bright the evidence of grace
Thro' all his life appears and shines!
