To tell us to rise, And he who lies late

Will never be wise.

And early to rise,
Is the way to be healthy

And wealthy and wise.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence

of mine enemies : thou anointest my head with oil ; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the

days of my life : and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
