Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
Teach erring man to spurn the rage of gain;
  Teach him that states, of native strength possest,
  Though very poor, may still be very blest.
        Goldsmith.—Deserted Village, Line 424.
Father of light and life! thou God Supreme!
O, teach me what is good! teach me thyself!
Save me from folly, vanity, and vice,
From every low pursuit! and feed my soul
With knowledge, conscious peace, and virtue pure,
Sacred, substantial, never fading bliss!
