Representative Text

1 Children, come and list to me,
While I speak of GOD above;
All the glorious things you see,
And His works of pow'r and love.

2 Wheresoe'er your feet have trod,
Scattered blessings round you lie,
All by GOD'S kind love bestowed,
Who has made both earth and sky.

3 When you hear the loud winds howling,
Tearing by with sudden crash,
Or the thunder's fearful growling,
Mingled with the lightning's flash:

4 These are subject to the LORD,
All created by His will,
And with one Almighty word,
He can make the storm be still.

5 O dear children, you should try,
This Almighty GOD to love,
That when your frail bodies die,
Your may see His face above.
