HYMN 687

Tune: C.M. (FE 712)

1.  BEHOLD the bee so wise and brave 
     Atop all flow’ry shrubs

     Busy ever, honey gathereth 

     From all shrubs deriveth.

2.  Behold how sweet, honey gathereth 

     into the comb he hath

     All grief and pains thus endureth 

     Behold its jelly bright.

3.  Thus ought l to be brave and wise 

     In all I thus engage

     Idle hands doth satan engage
     in worthless toils and care.

4.  I shall endeavour to study

     At so tender my age

     And shall attend harder my toils 

     May l not be ashamed.  Amen
