717. Blest the Man That Fears Jehovah

1 Blest the man that fears Jehovah,
walking ever in his ways,
by your toil you shall be prospered
and be happy all your days.

2 In your wife you shall have gladness,
she shall fill your home with good,
happy in her loving service
and the joys of motherhood.

3 Joyful children, sons and daughters,
shall about your table meet,
olive plants, in strength and beauty,
full of hope and promise sweet.

4 Lo, on him that fears Jehovah
shall this blessedness attend,
for Jehovah out of Zion
shall to you his blessing send.

5 You shall see God's kingdom prosper
all your days, till life shall cease,
you shall see your children's children;
on your people, Lord, be peace.
