405. Ye Children, Come

1. Ye children, come, give ear to me
And learn Jehovah's fear;
He who would long and happy live,
Let him my counsel hear.

Children, come, hither come,
And unto me give ear,
I shall you teach to understand
How ye the Lord should fear.

2. Restrain thy lips from speaking guile,
From wicked speech depart,
From evil turn and do the good,
Seek peace with all thy heart. [Refrain]

3. Jehovah's eyes are on the just,
He hearkens to they cry;
Against the wicked sets His face,
Their very name shall die. [Refrain]
