To the Tune: “Of the 48th Psalm”
or “No greater joy on earth there is”
1 For the commonweal it is great joy Pr 22:6, Sir 7:23, Eph 6:4 That parents raise their children young In the fear of God With admonitions in the Lord, In diligence holding up God's precepts And sparing not the rod. Pr 13:24
2 Now hear how Anneken took her leave From her son in Rotterdam, When death drew near to her: “Isaiah, receive your testament, And hear upon my words so fine, Pr 1:8, 4:1 Which from my mouth now do depart.” 69
