Hymn 14. Herod will seek the young Child to destroy Him. Matthew ii. 13.

1 Who Herod did of old inspire,
     Doth still inspire his sons
With aim malicious to inquire
     "Where are the perfect ones?"

2 Suffice that known to God they are,
     Nor will themselves proclaim,
Kept ever, watching unto prayer
     And hid in Jesus' name.
