Blessed are they whose sins have been forgiven,
Nothing more to hide, purged and purified.
Blessed are they whose crushing guilt has lifted,
Standing justified, blameless in His eyes.
None could be more blessed than they
Whose sin the Lord has washed away,
Who rest within His favor,
In the mercy of the Savior.
Heavy is His hand upon the shoulders
Of the silent ones, hiding sin from God.
Yet when they cast off the secret cover
Every sin confessed, grief gives way to rest!
Quickly, come and find a place of hiding!
You who are forgiv’n, shelter now in Him!
Mid the raging flood and rising waters
Stands the God of Grace ready now to save!
