The Lord seeks to protect you He seeks to cover you not With riches but salvation. All you need do is to be Open to his teachings. Let his words purify Your heart, let his wisdom Guide you along the path Of righteousness. Place not your faith All in the government For it can not save your soul. God has given you nature Not to control but live Within her harmony. God has given you grace Not to bestow but Share with the world. God has given you a soul Not to sell to the highest bidder But to honor all things Close to God. Do not fear the sore displeasure of God For as a father to his son you will Be reproached for doing wrong Even the saintly man has his moments Of weakness for the flesh is of the world And the soul is of heaven and the two From time to time war against each other Do not despise men for their weakness

131

For with the Lord as your guide shall you Triumph in all things of the earth and heaven. When you are vexed with grief And uncontrolled sorrows turn you To the Lord as your Savor When you are weak with misery Turn you to the Lord your Savor When the iniquity of others Cover you like a second skin Do not fear but turn you To the Lord your Savor. Ware not your righteousness As a badge of’ See I am better then you” Be not bold to beat Your fellow man over the head With the Bible for only if a man Ask you then give him the word Of the Lord as his reward. There is no shame in glory But much in vanity There is no shame in being righteous But much in gluttony. -
