Published in 3 hymnals
1 How blest are they who hear God's word,
And keep in faith what they have heard,
Who daily grow in learning.
From light to light they shall increase,
And tread life's weary path in peace,
The balm of joy discerning
To sooth the spirit's yearning.
2 Through sorrow's night my sun shall be
God's word--a treasure dear to me,
My shield and buckler ever.
My title as his child and heir
the Father's hand hat written there,
His promise failing never:
'Thou shalt be mine forever.'
3 Today his voice with joy I heard,
And, nourished by his holy word,
That bread so freely given,
May stronger faith through grace prevail,
And may its fruits for me avail,
That, after I have striven,
I rest with him in heaven.
