I. Is God withdrawing? all the Cost
And Pains that built the House are lost.
If God the City doth not keep,
The watchful Guards as well may sleep.
II. What if you rise before the Sun,
And work and toil when Day is done,
Careful and sparing eat your Bread,
To shun that Poverty you dread.
III. 'Tis all in vain, till God has blest:
He can make Rich, yet give us Rest;
Children and Friends are Blessings too,
If God our Sov'reign makes them so.
IV. Happy the Man to whom he sends
Obedient Children, faithful Friends.
How sweet our daily Comforts prove
When they are season'd with his Love!
V. To Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
The God, whom Heav'n's triumphant Host,
And suff'ring Saints on Earth adore,
Be Glory now and evermore.
