And shall I still wear Satan’s yoke,
And love my sins so well?

To–day, with pleasure, Christians meet,
To pray, and hear thy Word;
And I would go with cheerful feet
To learn thy will, O Lord!

I’ll leave my sport, to read and pray,
And so prepare for heaven:
O may I love this blessed day
The best of all the seven!
