Our God is just, and loves the right,
The wrong is hateful to His sight.
To all His creatures He is Kind,
He gave us reason that we might
Know good from bad, wrong from right.
This is the first to light our path,
To gain His grace and shun His wrath.
But gift of reason varies far,
Some wise and others foolish are.
The eyes of mind our passion dims,
And reason oft is quenched by whims.
