For in fire gold is tested,
and worthy men in the crucible of humiliation.
Study the generations long past and understand;
has anyone hoped in the Lord and been
Has anyone persevered in his fear and been
has anyone called upon him and been rebuffed?
Those who fear the
Lord disobey not his words;
those who love him keep his ways.
Let us fall into the hands of the
and not into the hands of men,
For equal to his majesty
is the mercy that he shows..
