O blest are they who in their love compassion hold for those in need;
For they shall find, when faced by foes, The Lord is their defense indeed.

When all the evils earth can dream are cast on me, my faith to break;
Their rage I temper through God’s grace, and bear them boldly for God’s sake.

The hands which shared my broken bread, my love with their deceit repaid;
And friends whose trust I counted mine have left me wounded and betrayed.

To me, O Lord, in mercy turn; your favor, my most treasured prize;
My mouth shall sing redemption’s song, and tears of love wash clean my eyes.
