And seek their Maker’s face!
In vain may Providence correct,
If not enforced by grace.

3 Exert Thy mighty influence, Lord,

Then shall Thy justice be adored,
Thy mercy stand confessed.

4 The scorner then shall mourn in dust,
And put his sins away,
No more resist his Maker’s hands,
But lift his own to pray.
