The Linsey-Woolsey Garment. Deut. 22. 11

J. Hart            8.3.

1
Dark is he whose eye’s not single;
Foolish man never can
Hell with heaven mingle.

2
[Everything we do we sin in.
Chosen Jews must not use
Woollen mixed with linen.]

3
God is holy in his nature;
And by that needs must hate
Sin in every creature.

4
Infinite in truth and justice,
He surveys all our ways;
Knows in whom our trust is.

5
Partial service is his loathing;
He requires pure desires;
All the heart, or nothing.

6
 [If we think of reconciling
Black with white, dark with light,
’Tis but self-beguiling.]

7
Righteousness to full perfection
Must be brought, lacking nought,
Fearless of rejection.
