79 (S.M.) Joseph Hart

Say, Christian, would'st thou thrive

In knowledge of thy Lord?

Against no Scripture ever strive,

But tremble at His word.

Revere the sacred page;

To injure any part

Betrays, with blind and feeble rage,

A hard and haughty heart.

If aught there dark appear,

Bewail thy want of sight;

No imperfection can be there,

For all God's words are right.

The Scriptures and the Lord

Bear one tremendous name;

The written and th'incarnate Word

In all things speak the same.
