He saw, and (O amazing Love !)
Down from the shining Seats above,
With joyful Haste he fled, Enter'd the Grave in mortal Flesh,
And dwelt among the Dead.
Oh! for this Love let Rocks and Hills
And all harmonious human Tongues,
Angels aflist our mighty Joys,
But when you raise your highest Notes,
TH E hand of our God
We hope not in vain)
Now help us O Lord,
With Praise and with Pray'r,, , To practice thy Word,
And worship with Fear j
Help us with Contrition,
To own what we've done, And give us remission
Thro' Christ thy dear Son.
Blest Spirit of Christ,
Help us to believe. Thy Servants assist,
In Christ for to Live: O fend us thy Unction,
To teach us all good, Apply free Remission,
In Christ's precious Blood.
The Christian JVarfart.
^jTand up, blest Souls, shake off your Fears,
Hell and your Sins resist your Course,
Then let your Souls march boldly on,
There may we wear a starry Crown,
LIKE Sheep we went astray,
How dreadful was the Hour When God our Wand'rings laid! And did at once his Vengeance pour Upon the Shepherd's Head!
How glorious was the Grace, When Christ sustain'd the Stroke \ His Life and Blood, the Shepherd pays A Ransom for the Flock.
His joyful Soul shall fee
Heav'n shall advance God's Son
The blejsed Society in Heaven,
OMay we mount on sacred Wings,
There on a high majestick Throne,
Th'Almighty Father reigns;
On all the blissful Plains.
Bright, like a Sun, the Saviour fits,
And spreads eternal Noon:
To want the feeble Moon.
Amidst those ever,shining Skies,
Behold the sacred Dove,
From all the realms of Love.
The glorious Tenants of that Place,
And Saints and Seraphs sing and praise
But oh! what beams of heav'nly Grace,
Transport them all the while;
And Love In every smile,
Jesus, Jesus, and when shall that dear Day,
That joyful Hour appear?
To dwell amongst 'em there.
.y E that seek the Lord who Dy'd,
While ye thus your Souls Employ,
See, as Snow, his Garment white,
