THE BOOK OF LIFE




They who hate thee, oh my Father,
Thou wilt clothe with endless shame,
But the righteous who revere thee,
Thou thy children wilt proclaim:
|: In thy records, :|
may I see my worthless name.


There should it be found inscribed,
It shall never know decay,
Though the rocks and hills may vanish,
Time and all things pass away:
|: Blessed prospect, :|
Of a never ending day.


Then amidst unnumbered dangers,
I will dwell devoid of fear;
Earth and hell can never injure
Those who are thy special care:
|: Whose inscription, :|
Thou hast placed on records fair.
