     1 A Psalm of David, Maschil. Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. 2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no guile. 3 When I kept silence, my bones waxed old through my roaring all the day long. 4 For day and night thy hand was heavy upon me: my moisture is turned into the drought of summer. Selah. 5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah. 6 For this shall every one that is godly pray unto thee in a time when thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto him.

     7 Thou art my hiding place; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah. 8 I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye. 9 Be ye not as the horse, or as the mule, which have no understanding: whose mouth must be held in with bit and bridle, lest they come near unto thee. 10 Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about. 11 Be glad in the LORD, and rejoice, ye righteous: and shout for joy, all ye that are upright in heart.(KJV)

1. Blest is the man, forever blest, 
Whose guilt is pardoned by his God, 
Whose sins with sorrow are confessed 
And covered with his Savior’s blood. 

2. Blest is the man to whom the Lord 
Imputes not his iniquities; 
He pleads no merit of reward 
And not on works but grace relies. 

3. From guile his heart and lips are free; 
His humble joy, his holy fear, 
With deep repentance well agree 
And join to prove his faith sincere. 

4. How glorious is that righteousness 
That hides and cancels all his sins, 
While bright the evidence of grace 
Thro’ all his life appears and shines!
