PASSION THE SOURCE OF MISERY, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Yet heaven's decrees are just and wise
Last Line: His miseries from his own.


Yet Heaven's decrees are just and wise,
And man is born to bear;
Joy is the portion of the skies,
Beneath them all is care.

Yet blame not Heav'n; 't is erring man
Who mars his own best joys;
Whose passion uncontroll'd the plan
Of promis'd bliss destroys.

The deadliest wounds with which we bleed,
Our crimes inflict alone:
Man's mercies from God's hand proceed.
His miseries from his own.
