His promise is Yea and Ameni i

And never was forfeited yet :' ;
Things future, nor things that are now

Not all things below nor above,
Can make him his purpose forego, in

Or sever my soul from his love.
3 My name from the palms of his hands

Eternity will not erase ;
Impressid on his heart it remains !

In marks of indelible grace: illi
Yes! I to the end shall endure, ,nie

As sure as the earnest is giv'n;
More happy, but not more secure,

The glorified spirits in heaven. TOPLÁDY.
