l. Seek the Lord, and in his ways persever:
O faint not, but as eagles fly,
For his steep hill is high,
Then striving gain the top and triumph ever.

2. When with glory there thy brows are crowned,
New joys so shall abound in thee,
Such sights thy soul shall see,
That worldly thoughts shall by their beams be drowned.
