Genesis 16:13
Almighty God! whose will alone
Sufficed the world to fabricate;
Whose comprehensive glance is thrown
O’er every empire, realm and state;
How from Thy ever-searching eye,
Can man the heart’s dominion hide?
Where passions among virtues lie,
As reptiles among flowers glide.
Father of mercies! aid my soul,
Its failings to eradicate;
Let truth its every thought control,
Its every feeling elevate.
Fearless before Thee let me stand,
Oh Lord! in conscious rectitude;
And feel, when human deeds are scanned,
That mine with favor shall be viewed.
