Hymns for the Amusement of Children (1791)/The Conclusion of the Matter
The Conclusion of the Matter.
Fear God — obey his just decrees,
And do it hand, and heart, and knees;
For after all our utmost care
There's nought like penitence and prayer.
5 Then weigh the balance in your mind,
Look forward, not one glance behind;
Let no foul fiend retard your pace,
Hosanna! Thou hast won the race.
- Cf. Eccl. 12:13
- 5—8. See. Heb. 12:1—2
