4 The huge celestial bodies roll, sirengiasi
Amidst the geu'ral fire;
And in the smoke expire.
Hyın 323. P. M.
Fear not little flock; for it is your Father's
good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Luke xii. 32. TOW happy are the little lock,
Rock, In all commotions rest! When wars and tumult's waves run high, Unmov'd above the storm they lie;
They lodge in Jesu's breast. 2 Such happiness, O Lord, bave we, By mercy gather'd unto thee
Before the floods descend: And while the bursting cloud comes down, We mark the vengeful day begun,
And calmly wait the end.
And bid our hearts arise:
To meet thee in the skies.
The earthquake speaks the power :
The famine all thy fulness brings;
And nature's Gual hour.
A sign of Jesus war ;
“ Triumphant Lord appear?"
Thy confessors t'approve:
In glorious heavenly love!
Hymn 324. C. M. But thou art the same, and thy years shall not
foil. Heb. i. 12. ET still the Lord, the Saviour reigns,
Yhei Watare is destroy'd,
And no created thing remains
Throughoui the Haming void. 2 Sublime upon his azure throne,
He speaks th'aluighty word; His fiat is obey'd!! 'tis done,
And paradise restor'd. 3 So be it, yet the system end;
This roinous earth and skies! The new Jerusalem descend,
The new creation rise!
4 Thy power omnipotent assume !
Thy brightest majesty!
My Lord, remember me!
Hymn 325. L. M. The sinners in Zion are afraid. Isa. xxxiii. 14. THE THE Lord, the Judge, the Church he
, Let fallen saints tremble and fear, Who place their hopes in rights and forms,
But make not faith and love their care. 2 Vile wretches dare rehearse his name
With lips of falsehood and deceit;
And soothe and flatter those they hate. 3 They watch to do their neighbours wrong;
Yet dare to seek their Maker's face:
But break his laws, abuse his grace. 4 To heaven they lift their hands unclean;
Defild with lust, defild with blood;
By day their mouths draw nigb to God. 5 And while his judgments long delay,
They grow secure, and sin tbe more:
And put far off the dreadful hour.
6.0 dreadföl hour when God draws near,
And sets their crimes before their eyes ! His wrath their guilty souls shall tear, And no deliv'rer dare to rise.
Hymn 326. S. M. For the Lord himself shall descend
from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,
and with the trump of God. 1 Thess. iv. 16. 1
*The Judge prepares to come! Th' archangel sounds the dreadful trump,
And wakes the general doom! 2 Nature in wild amaze,
Her dissolution mourns ;
The sun to darkness turns. 3 The living look with dread;
The frighted dead arise;
And lift their gbastly eyes. 4 Horrors all hearts appal,
They quake, they shriek, they cry;
But rocks and mountains fly. 5 Ye wilful wanton fools,
Let dangers make you wise!
Unclose your sleeping eyes. 6 'Tis time we all awake;
The dreadful day draws dear :
Sianers, your proud presumption check,
And stop your wild career. 7 Now is th' accepted time;
To Christ for mercy ily:
shall never die.
Prepare us for that day ;
To watch, and wait, avid pray.
Hymn 327. P. M. As strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly
lusts, which war against the soul. 1 Pet ü II. *How happy is the pilgrim's lot,
How fre from every auxious thought, From worldly hope and fear! Coafn'd to neither court nor cell, His son disdains on earth to dwell;
He only sojourps here.
From every creature love!
Aud seeks the things above.
Of those that basely pant
