O happy is the man who hears
, 24


1. O happy is the man who hearsInstruction’s warning voice!And who celestial wisdom makesHis early, only choice!
2. For she has treasures greater farThan east or west unfold;And her rewards more precious areThan all her stores of gold.
3. In her right hand she holds to view,A length of happy days;And wealth, with splendid honors joined,Are what her left displays.
4. She guides the young with innocenceIn pleasure’s path to tread;A crown of glory she bestowsUpon the hoary head.
5. According as her labors rise,So her rewards increase;Her ways are ways of pleasantness,And all her paths are peace.
