HYMN ccxxxiv.

The same.
How shall we address thy Throne,

O thou high and lofty One,
Merit we have none to bring,
But a Saviour's Blood we fing.
Lord, we are a treach'rous Race !
Long have we abus'd thy Grace !
Long have trampled on the Blood
Of our agonizing God.
Monuments of thy Free Grace,
We adore thy searchless Ways;
We admire, and well we may !
How we're spar'd from Day to Day!
Former Favours now excite
Us, thy Mercy to invite ;
Abba, Father, hear our Pray'r, .
Once again for us appear.

Righteous God, thou Judge supreme !

We tremble at thy dreadful Name,
And all our crying Guilt we own,
In Duft and Tears before thy Throne.


Juftly might this polluted Land,
Prove all the vengeance of thy Hand,
But view us, Lord, with pitying Eye,
And lay thy lifted Thunder by.
Forgive the Follies of our Times,
And purge our Land of all its Crimes,
Reform’d and deck'd with Grace divine,
Let Princes, Priests, and People, shine.
Behold, thy Childrens Tears and Moan,
Nor turn away their secret Groan,
With these we join in huinble Pray'r,
Our Nation shield, our Country spare.

T ORD, thou hast bid thy People Pray, L For all that bear the Soy'reign (way,

And thy Vicegerents Reign, Rulers, and Governors and Powers, And Lo! in Faith we Pray for ours,

Nor can we Pray in vain.

Jesus, thy chosen Servant guard,
And every threat'ning Danger ward,

From his anointed Head;
Bid all his Griefs and Troubles ceafe,
And thro’ the Paths of Heavenly Peace,

To Life eternal lead,
