1 Thus saith the Wisdom of the Lord,
"Bless'd is the Man that hears my Word,
"Keeps daily Watch before my Gates,
"And at my feet for Mercy waits.
2 "The Soul that seeks me shall obtain
"Immortal Wealth and heav'nly Gain;
"Immortal Life is his Reward,
"Life, and the Favour of the Lord.
3 "But the vile Wretch that flies from me,
"Doth his own Soul an Injury;
Fools that against my Grace rebel
Seek Death, and love the Road to Hell.
