Hymn 351

Play music

1 O happy is the man who hears
Instruction's warning voice;
And who celestial wisdom makes
His early, only choice.
2 For she has treasures greater far
Than east and west unfold;
And her rewards more precious are
Than all their stores of gold.
3 In her right hand she holds to view
A length of happy days;
Riches, with splendid honours joined,
Are what her left displays.
4 She guides the young with innocence
In pleasant paths to tread;
A crown of glory she bestows
Upon the hoary head.
5 According as her labours rise
So her rewards increase;
Her ways arc ways of pleasantness,
And all her paths are peace.
