1 All knowing God, 'tis thine to know
The springs whence wrong opinions flow;
To judge, from principles within,
When frailty errs, and when we sin.
2 Who, among men, high Lord of all,
Thy servants to his bar may call?
Decide of heresy, and shake
A brother o'er the flaming lake?
3 Who with another's eye can read?
Or worship by another's creed?
Revering thy command alone,
We humbly seek and use our own.
4 If wrong, forgive; accept, if right;
While faithful we obey our light;
And, cens'uring none, are zealous still,
To follow as to learn thy will.
5 When shall our happy eyes behold
Thy people fashion'd in thy mould?
And charity our lineage prove
Deriv'd from thee, O God of love?
