In God, the holy, wise, and just,
From childhood’s tender years,
Have I reposed with perfect trust,
My worldly hopes and fears.
From every page that time has turned,
Since that bright season fled;
Some useful lesson have I learned,
Some striking moral read.
The prize, Ambition, keenly sought,
A worthless bauble proved;
The web of gold by Av’rice wrought,
A mighty hand removed.
No self-exalting scheme can Man,
Unknown to God, project;
No dark device the sland’rer plan,
Which He will not detect.
In vain would evil-doers hope
His scrutiny to fly;
Nought passes beneath heaven’s cope,
Unnoticed by His eye.
Oh! should my term of life exceed,
Frail man’s allotted days;
In age to Mercy would I plead.
For strength my God to praise.
