Who from the rich quite empty go, Religion brings fair Zion's bread,
Aod fills the soul with heaven below.

“ Or minds th' affairs of men. 2 From thoughts so dreadful and profane
Corrupt discourse proceeds;
And by their impious hands are done

Their slanders never cease ;
Nor know the paths of peace !

Where the true God is koowi). 2 In this enlighten'd, pleasant land,

In sorrow's dismal night.

For thou art ever nigh.
