For Christmas

The Priest Zachary, the Husband of Elizabeth

    Could Zachary the just,
    Who walk'd before the Lord,
The' Omnipotent Himself mistrust,
    And stagger at His word?
    Where is the faithful man,
    Unless the Lord who gave
His faith, continually maintain,
    And to the utmost save?
