God on the fide of his People.
RE Chaos into order mov'd
With joy they recollect the day
Stopp'd in a mad career of fin,
O what a change took place within!--
Let doubts and fears, their peace affail,
Doubts, fears, and foes fhall ne'er prevail-
When wealth, when health, when frength
In God may they confide;
And fear no evil then, because
The Lord is on their fide.
Soon Jefus beauties they fhall view,
And find the facred record true,
99. L. M. WATTS, altered.
Glory and Grace in the Perfon of Chrift.
TOW to the Lord a grateful fong! Awake, my foul, awake, my tongue : Hofannah to th' eternal name,
And all his boundless love proclaim.
See where it shines in Jefus' face,
The fpacious earth and spreading flood,
But in his looks a glory ftands,
Grace! 'tis a fweet, a charming theme;
Oh that we all may reach the place,
INVITATIONS AND PROMISES.

Suited to ev'ry finner's cafe,
Who knows the joyful found.
Poor, finful, thirsty, fainting fouls
Are freely welcome here: Salvation like a river rolls, Abundant, free, and clear.
Draw near, with all your wants and wounds;
Your ev'ry burden bring:
Here love, unchanging love, abounds;
A deep celestial fpring.
This fpring with living water flows,
Come, thirfty fouls, your wants difclofe,
Millions of finners, vile as you,
HO! ev'ry one that thirfts, draw nigh;
Salvation fuits the finner's cafe ;
Mercy and free falvation buy;
Nothing ye in exchange may give;
For Sinners Jefus deign'd to bleed,
102. S. M.
THE Lord on high proclaims
"Ye dying fouls, that fit
Sinners fhall hear the found;
Their thankful tongues fhall own,
"Our righteousness and ftrength are found "In thee, O Lord, alone."
In thee fhall Ifr'el truft,
And fee their guilt forgiv'n :
103. Sevens. MORTON'S Col.
HRIST hath bleffings to impart,
O the love that fills his heart!-
Yet his mercy is no lefs :
Yield not then to unbelief,
Courage foul!" there yet is room!"
Tho' of finners thou art chief,
Come, thou burden'd finner come.
104. C. M.
