Exodus 20:13.
When I remember, my God!
The bounties from my birth received,
Knowledge that from my parents flowed,
Of all Thy mercies had achieved;
Those guardians, how shall I requite,
Who cherished me thro’ childhood’s stage?
Unless I in thy law delight,
And shield and honor them, in age;
Soften with unremitting care,
Frailties they may through life betray;
With love and reverential fear,
Their least command or wish obey.
Ye outcasts from the social pale!
Apostates from the filial creed!
Let Sinai’s warning voice prevail,
When nature fails her cause to plead!
Bless ye the authors of your birth!
Next to your heavenly father’s praise,
The highest duty upon earth,
That faith enjoins, or man obeys.
