Hymn/Song Information

PROSPERITY OF THE WICKED




The wicked live, increase in power,
And every earthly good possess;
They gain accessions to their store,
And still they labour with success.


Strangers to poverty and pain,
They taste of each terrestrial joy;
Madly intent this world to gain,
They gain the world, their souls destroy.


Their feet are in a slippery place,
Their riches swift as shadows fly:
Their honour ends in long disgrace,
In mirth they live, in aguish die.


Oh may I flee the fatal snare,
And straight to bliss my course pursue,
Dependant on thy guardian care,
Press on with glory in my view.
