Loves his commands and trusts his word:
And blessings on his seed descend. 2 Compassion dwells upon his mind,
To works of mercy still inclined ;

His works are still before his God;
Nor shall his hope of heaven be vain.
And follows his commands;
Or gives with liberal hands.
To all the sons of need;
With blessings on his seed.

And give him peace divine.
Remain before the Lord ;
Shall be his sure reward.
