p. 17.

1. O generous man, if you desire not to be in torture, give to the
Lord His share as you give it to yourself.

2. Welcome to him that giveth food and drink! If you give food
and clothing, that will help you in Heaven.

3. Whatever you have in the house, both corn and milk and honey,
you will not take with you on your journey when there will be going to death. O man.
