Rising in the morning
- A plant without moisture sweet,
Can bring forth no good flower,
If in youth ye lack virtue,
In age, ye shall want honor.
- First, dread you, God,
and fly from sin,
Earthly things are mortal,
Be thou not haughty in thy looks,
Pride will have a fall.
- Rise you early in the morning,
For it hath properties three,
Holiness, health, and happy wealth,
As my father taught me.
- At six of the clock,
without delay, Accustom thee to rise,
And give God thanks for thy good rest,
When thou openest thine eyes.
- Pray Him also to prosper,
thee And thine affairs in deed,
All the day after, assure thyself,
The better shalt thou speed.
