1  If God succeed not, all the cost
And pains to build the house are lost;
If God the city will not keep,
The watchful guards as well might sleep.
2  What if you rise before the sun,
And work and toil when day is done,
Careful and sparing eat your bread,
To shun that poverty you dread.

 

3  'Tis all in vain, till God hath blest;
He can make rich, yet give us rest:
Children and friends are blessings too,
If God our sovereign make them so.
4  Happy the man to whom he sends
Obedient children, faithful friends:
How sweet our daily comforts prove,
When they are seasoned with his love!
