Title
How blest are they – Stephen Oliver (1950–1992)
Text
How blest are they that feareth the Lord and walk in his ways for they shall eat the labours of their hands. Thy wife shall be as the fruitful vine around the walls of thine house - thy children like the olive branches growing round the table. Lo, thus shall the man be blest that feareth the Lord.
