5577 7. 7 7
BLESSèD are the sons of God;
   They are bought with Jesus’ blood,
They are ransomed from the grave,
Life eternal they shall have.
2  God did love them in His Son,
Long before the world begun;
They the seal of this receive,
When on Jesus they believe.
3  They are justified by grace,
They enjoy a solid peace;
All their sins are washed away,
They shall stand in God’s great Day.
4  They have fellowship with God,
Through the Mediator’s blood;
One with God, through Jesus one,
Glory is in them begun.
5  Though they suffer much on earth
Strangers to the worldling’s mirth,
Yet they have an inward joy,
Pleasures which can never cloy.
6  They alone are truly blest,
Heirs of God, joint heirs with Christ;
With them numbered may we be,
Now and through eternity.
Joseph Humphreys, b 1720
