SUGGESTED TUNES: ST. THOMAS or FESTAL SONG
This is the meter of such hymns as "I Love Thy Kingdom, Lord" and "Rise Up, O Men of God"
1. O fear the Lord, you saints!
There-by you shall not want.
Young li-ons suf-fer, want-ing food;
Seek God, and re-ceive good.
2. Come, child-ren, hear me out,
I'll teach you to fear God.
Do you de-sire life to en-joy,
Long life to en-joy good?
3. Then e-vil do not speak,
And don't go tell-ing lies.
De-part from e-vil and do good,
Seek peace and it pur-sue.
