Happy the man that finds the grace
Charles Wesley (m) T. Blockley (tune: Blockley) (meter: L.M. F Major)
1 Happy the man who finds the grace, The blessing of God's chosen race, The wisdom coming from above, The faith that sweetly works by love. 2 Wisdom divine! who tells the price Of wisdom's costly merchandise? Wisdom to silver we prefer, And gold is dross compared to her. 3 Her hands are filled with length of days, True riches, and immortal praise, Riches of Christ on all bestowed, And honour that descends from God. 4 To purest joys she all invites, Chaste, holy, spiritual delights; Her ways are ways of pleasantness, And all her flowery paths are peace. 5 Happy the man who wisdom gains; Thrice happy, who his guest retains; He owns, and shall for ever own, Wisdom, and Christ, and heaven, are one.
