     21 To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.

     22 He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.

     23 He that rebuketh a man afterwards shall find more favour than he that flattereth with the tongue.

     24 Whoso robbeth his father or his mother, and saith, It is no transgression; the same is the companion of a destroyer.

     25 He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat.

     26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.

     27 He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse.

     28 When the wicked rise, men hide themselves: but when they perish, the righteous increase.(KJV)

1. What our Father does is well: 
Blessed truth His children tell! 
Though He send, for plenty, want, 
Though the harvest-store be scant, 
Yet we rest upon His love, 
Seeking better things above. 

2. What our Father does is well, 
Shall the wilful heart rebel 
If a blessing He withhold 
In the field or in the fold? 
Is He not Himself to be 
All our store eternally? 

3. What our Father does is well, 
Though He sadden hill and dell, 
Upward yet our praises rise 
For the strength His Word supplies. 
He has called us sons of God; 
Can we murmur at His rod? 

4. What our Father does is well, 
May the thought within us dwell! 
Though no milk nor honey flow 
In our barren Canaan now, 
God can save us in our need, 
God can bless us, God can feed. 

5. Therefore unto Him we raise 
Hymns of glory, songs of praise, 
To the Father and the Son 
And the Spirit, Three in One, 
Honor, might, and glory be 
Now and through eternity.
