Great peace have they that love thy law,
    Them nothing will offend;
They’ll bear neglect, reproach and scorn,
    Though without cause contemned.

Their innocence will bear them up,
    Though falsely they’re accused;
Their hearts will melt with love for those
    By whom they are abused.

The court of Heaven their cause will plead,
    The innocent will clear;
Though men may load their names with guilt,
    While they continue here.

A consciousness of right within,
    Great peace and joy afford;
How free, how happy, oh! how blest,
    Communing with the Lord.

He says “Revile not, when reviled,
    Thy wrongs I will repay;
Be every burden cast on me,
    I’ll be thy strength and stay.”
