Let praise devote thy work, and skill...
Let praise devote thy work, and skill employ
Thy whole mind, and thy heart be lost in joy.
Well-doing bringeth pride, this constant thought
Humility, that thy best done is nought.
Man doeth nothing well, be it great or small,
Save to praise God ; but that hath saved all :
For God requires no more than thou hast done,
And takes thy work to bless it for his own.
