Representative Text

All souls are his, and him alike
Their common Parent claim.

3 Ye sons of men of high degree,

Praise him for all his gifts, and pay
Your homage at his throne.

4 Trust in the Lord, ye humble poor,
And banish ev'ry fear:
The God you serve will ne'er forsake
The man of heart sincere.
