Song 23.

Obedience to parents.

8,6,8,6

Let children that would fear the Lord

Hear what their teachers say;

With reverence meet their parents’ word,

And with delight obey.

74

Have you not heard what dreadful plagues

Are threaten’d by the Lord,

To him that breaks his father’s law,

Or mocks his mother’s word?

What heavy guilt upon him lies!

How cursed is his name!

The ravens shall pick out his eyes,

And eagles eat the same.

But those who worship God, and give

Their parents honour due,

Here on this earth they long shall live,

And live hereafter, too.
