Hymn/Song Information

While sinners brought to sad decay still




While sinners, brought to sad decay,
still borrow on and never pay,
The just have will and pow'r to give;
For such as God vouchsafes to bless,
shall peaceably the earth possess,
And those he curses shall not live.


The good man's way is God's delight,
he orders all the steps aright
Of him that moves by his command;
Though he sometimes may be distressed,
yet shall he ne'er be quite oppressed,
For God upholds him with his hand.


From my first youth, till age prevailed,
I never saw the righteous failed,
Or want o'ertake his num'rous race;
Because compassion filled his heart,
and he did cheerfully impart,
God made his offspring's wealth increase.


With caution shun each wicked deed,
in virtue's ways with zeal proceed,
And so prolong your happy days:
For God, who judgment loves, does still
preserve his saints secure from ill,
While soon the wicked race decays.


The upright shall possess the land,
his portion shall for ages stand;
His mouth with wisdom is supplied;
His tongue by rules of judgment moves,
his heart the law of God approves,
Therefore his footsteps never slide.
