Toil for Jesus
- Brethren, why toil ye thus for toys,
And reckon trash for treasure?
Call gay deceptions solid joys,
If more refined amusements please,
As knowledge, arts, or learning,
A moment puts an end to these,
And sometimes short's the warning.
Reflect what trifles ye pursue,
So anxious and so heedful;
For, after all, you'll find it true,
There's but one thing needful
God in His Scriptures to reveal
His will has condescended;
What there is said He will fulfil,
Though man may be offended.
