From needing danger, to be good

  From needing danger, to be good, 
From owing Thee yesterday’s tears to-day, 
  From trusting so much to Thy blood 
That in that hope we wound our soul away, 
              From bribing Thee with alms, to excuse 
              Some sin more burdenous, 
From light affecting, in religion, news, 
From thinking us all soul, neglecting thus 
Our mutual duties, Lord, deliver us.
