As pilgrims and migrants abstain,
War with the lusts of the flesh.
Our weapons unworldly will gain,
Love from the Lord we posses.
Non-Christians will always accuse,
Vilest affronts to our head.
Yet by the good works that we do,
They may exalt God instead.
Conduct then with honor you deeds,
They will observe and take heed.
Submit, for the Lord’s sake, to these,
Governors, judges, and kings.
Authority comes from the Lord,
Thus God appointed these men.
To wicked they draw out a sword,
Goodness they praise and commend.
For this is the will of our God,
Goodness and love be our rule.
Thus showing man’s falsehood facade,
Silencing ignorant fools.
