Temptations -- From the Fear of Man

The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe. Prov. 29:25

The taunts and frowns of men of earth,
What are they all to me!
Oh they are things of little worth,
Weigh'd with one smile from Thee,
Who bore a sorrow deeper far,
Than all these stingless trifles are.
