May each youthful descendant of godly parents be so kept by God’s grace that the Lord may always be with him. Keep God’s favour, and nothing is lost. Lose that, and all is gone.
Endow me, Lord, with godly fear,
A quick discerning eye,
To look to thee when sin is near,
And from the tempter fly.
Create in me a holy mind,
A sin-abhorring will,
That tramples down, and casts behind
The baits of pleasing ill.
