5. What shall I do??. was then the word,

That I may worthier grow?
•What shall I render to the Lord ?
Is my inquiry now.

wine 6 To see the law by Christ fulfillid,

And hear his pardoning voice,
Changes a slave into a child, now!

And daty into choice. a COWPER.

The Law and the Gospel; or, Cbrist a Refuge.
1 CURST be the man, for ever curst,

U That doth one wilful sin commit:
Death and damnation for the first,

Without relief, and infinite ?
2 Thus Sinai roars, and round the earth

Thunder, and fire, and vengeance flings;
But Jesus, thy dear gasping breath,

And Calvary, say gentler things :
3 Pardon, and grace, and boundless love, :

Streaming along a Saviour's blood;
And life, and joys, and crowns above,
Obtain'd by a dear blecding Godo ?
Hark, how he prays (the charming sound
Dwells on his dying lips) Forgive
And every groan and gaping wound

Cries, Father, let the rebels live ! T 5 Go, you that rest upon the law,

And toil and seek salvation théré; }
Look to the flame that Moses saw,

And shrink, and tremble, and despair ; : 6 But I'll retire beneath the cross,

Saviour, at thy dear feet I'll lie;
And the keen sword that justice draws,
Flaming and red, shall pass me by.
