« Prev Hymn 314: Happy the child, who early makes Next »


James Montgomery

The Happiness of those who walk with Christ.

Happy the child, who early makes

The path of duty his delight,

The way of wickedness forsakes,

And walks as in his Maker's sight.

Happy the youth, whose soul hath found

Pardon and favour with the Lord;

True riches shall to him abound,

True pleasures spring from God's word.

Happy the man, who trusts in Thee,

Christ, our Redeemer, strong to save,

Thy love through life his bliss shall be,

In death his hope beyond the grave.

Thrice happy they, who thus are taught

To seek salvation here below,

And young or old, determined naught,

Save Jesus crucified, to know.
