Who fain wou'd believe him,
And in your best room
But fear to presumę. 3 Remember one thing,
(O may it sink deep)
Cares much for his sheep.
The work is his own :
And gives him his crown. 3 Those feeble desires,
Those wishes so weak,
And bids you still feek.
The life he first gave :
If Jesus can fave.
Tho' helpless in kind,
They nourishment find :
When faint, in his arms;
And guards them from harms.
5 Blest soul, that can fay,
“ Christ only I feek;
Be conftant, tho weak:
Will not tarry long ;
Does the word of God afford ?
Food & MED'CINE, SHIELD & SWORD.
Having this I need no more. 2 Food to which the world's a stranger,
Here my hungry foul enjoys ;
Tho' it fills, it never cloys.
Here is meat and drink indeed.
Or when Satan wounds my mind,
Healing MED'CInes here I find :
4 In the hour of dark temptation
Satan cannot make me yield;
Is to me a mighty SHIELD.
From his pow'r I'm secure.
When I take the Spirit's SWORD,
Satan trembles at the word:
Keen the edge, and sharp the blade. 6 Shall I envy then the miser
Doating on his golden store ?
I am rich, 'tis he is poor.
