     16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; 18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.

     19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.(KJV)

1. That man a Godly life might live, 
God did these Ten Commandments give 
By His true servant Moses, high 
Upon the Mount Sinai. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

2. I am thy God and Lord alone, 
No other God beside Me own; 
Put thy whole confidence in Me 
And love Me e’er cordially. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

3. By idle word and speech profane 
Take not My holy name in vain 
And praise but that as good and true 
Which I Myself say and do. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

4. Hallow the day which God hath blest 
That thou and all thy house may rest; 
Keep hand and heart from labor free 
That God may so work in thee. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

5. Give to thy parents honor due, 
Be dutiful, and loving, too, 
And help them when their strength decays, 
So shalt thou have length of days. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

6. In sinful wrath thou shalt not kill 
Nor hate nor render ill for ill; 
Be patient and of gentle mood, 
And to thy foe do thou good. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

7. Be faithful to thy marriage vows, 
Thy heart give only to thy spouse; 
Thy life keep pure, and lest thou sin, 
Use temperance and discipline. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

8. Steal not; all usury abhor 
Nor wring their life-blood from the poor, 
But open wide thy loving hand 
To all the poor in the land. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

9. Bear not false witness nor belie 
Thy neighbor by foul calumny. 
Defend his innocence from blame; 
With charity hide his shame. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

10. Thy neighbor’s house desire thou not, 
His wife, nor aught that he hath got, 
But wish that his such good may be 
As thy heart doth wish for thee. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

11. God these commandments gave therein 
To show thee, child of man, thy sin 
And make thee also well perceive 
How man unto God should live. 
Have mercy, Lord! 

12. Help us, Lord Jesus Christ, for we 
A Mediator have in Thee; 
Our works cannot salvation gain; 
Thy merit but endless pain. 
Have mercy, Lord!
