1 Christians in your several stations,
Dutiful to all relations,
Give to each his proper due,
Let not their unkind behaviour,
Make you disobey your Saviour,
His command's the rule for you.
2 Parents be to children tender,
Children, full obedience render,
To your parents in the Lord;
Never slight nor disrespect them,
Nor thro' pride, when old reject them;
'Tis the precept of the word.
3 Wives, to Husbands yield subjection;
Husband with a kind affection,
Cherish, as yourselves, your wives,
Masters rule with moderation
Sway'd by justice, not by passion,
To the scriptures square your lives.
4 Servants, serve your master truly;
Not unfaithful, nor unruly,
to the good nor to the bad,
Nor refusing what you'r bidden;
Nor replying when you'r chidden,
'Tis the ordinance of God.
5 This shall solve th' important question,
Whether thou'rt a real Christian,
Better than each golden dream:
Better far than lip expression,
Tow'ring notions, great profession,
This shall shew your love to him.
