Blest Are the Souls Who Hear and Know

“Blest Are the Souls Who Hear and Know” by Isaac Watts
Blest are the souls who hear and know
     The gospel's joyful sound;
Peace shall attend the paths they go,
     And light their steps surround.

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

The Lord, our glory and defense,
     Strength and salvation gives:
Israel, thy King forever reigns,
     Thy God forever lives.

Isaac Watts

Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book, Methodist Episcopal Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #198.

Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.
