From tempting Satan to tempt us

  From tempting Satan to tempt us, 
By our connivance, or slack company, 
  From measuring ill by vicious 
Neglecting to choke sin’s spawn, vanity, 
              From indiscreet humility, 
              Which might be scandalous 
And cast reproach on Christianity, 
From being spies, or to spies pervious, 
From thirst or scorn of fame, deliver us.
