Blessed Are The Undefiled In Heart
by Isaac Watts
Blessed are the undefiled in heart,
Whose ways are right and clean,
Who never from Thy law depart,
But fly from every sin.
Blest are the men who keep Thy word,
And practice Thy commands;
With their whole heart they seek the Lord,
And serve Thee with their hands.
Great is their peace who love Thy law;
How firm their souls abide!
Nor can a bold temptation draw
Their steady feet aside.
Then shall my heart have inward joy,
And keep my face from shame,
When all Thy statutes I obey,
And honor all Thy name.
But haughty sinners God will hate,
The proud shall die accursed;
The sons of falsehood and deceit
Are trodden to the dust.
Vile as the dross the wicked are;
And those that leave Thy ways,
Shall see salvation from afar,
But never taste Thy grace.
