Guard us, Oh ! guard us from all Sin,
AN D are we Wretches yet alive?
The burden of our weighty Guilt,
And threat'ning VeDgeance rolls above,
Almighty goodness cries forbear,
And strait the Thunder stays,
And weary out his Grace.
Lord, we have long abus'd thy Love!
Too long indulg'd our Sin;
What Rebels we have been.
No more our Lusts may ye command,
No more may we obey f Stretch out, O God, thy conquering Hand,
And drive our Foes away.
ONCE more the constant Sun,
Hence! let Believers learn,
With Patience press,
Towards the Sun
What now shall be our Task,
With one accord
Our Hearts we'll list,
And ask our Lord,
A New-Years Gift.
No trifling Gift or small,
Faith that stands fast,
HO W can we adore,
Thou God of all Grace!
Before Thee we fall, Most gladly confessing Thee, Father of all.
The Heavens and Earth,
And Water and Air,
Subsist by thy Care;
Thy Praises above,
Our Tributes of Love..
Thou Saviour art One
With God the Supreme, His eternal Son,
And equal with Him: Invested with Glory,.
On high dost thou sit, While Angels adore Thee
And bow at thy Feet.
How How great was thy Love,
How wond'rous thy Grace! Thou cam'ft from above
To save a lost Race; And, Man to deliver,
Of Mary wast born, That ev'ry Believer
To God might return.
How soon will thy Seat
Of Judgment appear? Prepare us to meet
And welcome Thee there! Thy witnessing Spirit
In us shed abroad, .
And bid us inherit
The Kingdom of God.
HAIL thou once despised Jesus!
Who didst free Salvation bring!
Who hast born our Sin and Shame,
Paschal Lamb by God appointed,
By Almighty Love appointed,
Ev'ry Sin may be forgiv'n,
Open'd is the Gate of Heaven,
Peace is made 'twixt Man and God.
Jesus Hail! enthron'd in Glory,
There forever to abide f
Seated at thy Father's side:
"Spare them yet another Year—'* Thou for Saints art interceding,
Till in Glory they appear.
Worship, Honour, Power and Blessing,
Christ is worthy to receive, Loudest Praises without ceasing,
Meet it is for us to give, Help, ye bright angelic Spirits,
Bring your sweetest, noblest Lays* Help to sing our Jesu's Merits,
Help to chaunt Emmanuel's Praise.
Imploring for God's Protection,
O Ever-living Priest,
We've no where else to flee;
