Grudge not to see the wicked men in




Grudge not to see the wicked men
in wealth to flourish still;
or envy such as ill to do
have bent and set their will.


For as the grass and the green herbs
do wither and decay,
So shall their great prosperity
soon fade and pass away.


Trust thou therefore in God alone,
to do well give thy mind,
So shalt thou have the land as thine,
and there sure food shalt find.


In God set all thy heart's delight,
and look what thou would'st have,
Or else canst wish in all the world,
thou need'st it not to crave.


Cast both thyself and thy affairs
on God with perfect trust;
And then thou shalt with patience see
Th' effect both sure and just.


Thy perfect life and godly name
he will clear as the light,
So that the sun, e'en at noon day,
shall not shine half so bright.


Be still therefore, and steadfastly
on God see thou wait then,
Not shrinking for the prosp'rous state
of vile and wicked men.


Shake off despite, envy, and hate,
let not thy anger rise,
That thou may'st not be drawn into
some sinful enterprise.


For ev'ry wicked man will God
most certainly destroy;
But such as trust in him are sure
the land for to enjoy.


Wait but awhile, and thou shalt see
no more the wicked train;
No, not so much as house or place
where once he did remain.
