656. Ye children, come, give ear to me

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 their cry;
Against the wicked sets his face,
Their very name shall die. [Refrain]
