Hymn/Song Information

Come near to me my children and unto my




Come near to me, my children, and
unto my words give ear;
I will you teach the perfect way,
how ye the Lord shall fear.


Who is the man that would live long,
and lead a happy life?
See thou refrain thy tongue and lips
from all deceit and strife.


Turn back thy face from doing ill,
and do the godly deed:
Inquire for peace and quietness,
and follow it with speed.


For why? the eyes of God above
upon the just are bent;
His ears likewise to hear the cry
of the poor innocent.


But he doth frown, and bend his brows
upon the wicked train,
And cuts away the memory
that should of them remain.


But when the just do call and cry,
the Lord doth hear them so,
That out of pain and misery
forthwith he lets them go.


The Lord is ever nigh to them
that broken-hearted are,
And for the contrite spirit he
salvation doth prepare.


Full many be the miseries
that righteous men endure;
But of deliv'rance from them all
the Lord doth them secure.


The Lord doth so preserve and keep
their very bones alway,
That not so much as one of them
doth perish or decay.


The sin shall slay the wicked man
which he himself hath wrought;
And such as hate the righteous man
shall soon be brought to nought.


But they that fear the living Lord
are ever safe and sound;
And as for those that trust in him,
nothing shall them confound.
