A Joyful Gospel. Ps. 89. 15-18; 3. 8

I. Watts                                                 C.M.

1
Blest are the souls that hear and know
The gospel’s joyful sound;
Peace shall attend the path they go,
And light their steps surround.

2
Their joy shall bear their spirits up,
Through their Redeemer’s name;
His righteousness exalts their hope,
Nor Satan dares condemn.

3
The Lord, our glory and defence,
Strength and salvation gives;
Israel, thy King for ever reigns,
Thy God for ever lives.
