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.
