775. C. M. Watts. Liberality Rewarded. Ps.112.
1 Happy is he that fears the Lord,
And follows his commands;
Who lends the poor without reward,
Or gives with liberal hands.
2 As pity dwells within his breast
To all the sons of need,
So God shall answer his request
With blessings on his seed.
3 No evil tidings shall surprise
His well-established mind;
His soul to God, his refuge, flies,
And leaves his fears behind.
4 In times of general distress,
Some beams of light shall shine
To show the world his righteousness,
And give him peace divine.
