The Christian Life Should Ever Be

The Christian life should ever be
Attended with due care;
That other’s too should learn and see
What faithful christians are.

The christian should not act unwise,
But search that he may know
The way to gain the heav’nly prize
That Jesus will bestow.

What God on christians hath bestow’d,
Should never be abus’d;
But as the precious gifts of God
Be well applied and us’d.

But they should ever be employ’d
To learn the Saviour’s ways;
And let each soul be edified,
By singing of his praise.

To thank the Lord and praise his name
Their hearts should be inclin’d,
And all their object and their theme,
To learn the Saviour’s mind.
