The righteous is confident as a Lion


Pro. 28.

The guilty conscience feares, when there's no fear,
And thinks, that every bush containes a beare;
When none persues, the wicked flyes, and still
Distractions alter his confused will:
The righteous man sits in his peaceful chair
Secure from fears, and free from black dispair.
His resolution like a Uirgin pure
He keeps unspotted, and can well endure
The burden of affliction: for the crosse
Makes trial, whether he be gold or drosse.
The righteous shelter'd under heavens wing
Like the three children in the fire may sing.
For God will broach the rocks, and Manna rain
He'le bring the quailes together to sustain
His chosen people: Lions hunger may,
And want; but he shat treads a vertuous way,


Shall never feare a famine: God is able
In the wild desarts to prepare a table.
The Devil will destroy, the flesh infect,
The world deceive, unlesse that God protect.
