1. Men who walk in folly’s way,
And to evil turn aside,
Find that sorrow will repay
Those who wisdom’s laws defied;
Down to death’s dark portals led,
They abhor their daily bread.
2. To Jehovah then they cry
In their trouble, and He saves,
Sends compassionate reply,
Gives the health their spirit craves,
Rescues them with gracious aid
From the snares their folly laid.
3. Sons of men, awake to praise
God the Lord Who reigns above,
Gracious in His works and ways,
Wondrous in redeeming love;
Let them all thank off’rings bring,
Celebrate His deeds, and sing.
