5 Let men or angels dig the mines )

Where nature's golden treasure shines;
Brought near the doctrine of the cross,..,

All nature's gold appears but dross. 6 Should vile blasphemers with disdain

Pronounce the truths of Jesus vain,
We'll meet the scandal and the shame,
And sing and triumph in his name.

Still of his grace partake!...
This but confirms his truth the more,

For so the prophets-spake.
5 Do some, that own his sacred truth,

' Indulge their souls in sin?
None should reproach the Saviour's name,

His laws are pure and clean.

Our lips profess his word; in 1
Nor ever shun those holy men
Who fear and love the Lord. .
