They break our duty, Lord, to thee, HU; or, the vengeance of God.

And hurry us away. WITH holy fear, and humble song, The dreadful God our souls adore; 2 The waves of trouble, how they rise!

How loud the tempests roar! Reverence and awe becomes the tongue That speaks the terrors of his power. But death shall land our weary souls

Safe on the heavenly shore. Far in the deep, where darkness dwells, The land of horror and despair, 3 There, to fulfil his sweetcommands, Justice has built a dismal hell,

Our speedy feet shall move; And laid her stores of vengeance there. No sin shall clog our winged zeal, 3 [Eternal plagues, and heavy chains,

Or cool our burning love. Tormenting racks, and fiery coals, 4 There shall we sit, and sing, and tell And darts t inflict immortal pains, The wonders of his grace; Dy'd in the blood of damned souls. Till heavenly raptures fire our hearts, 4 There Satan, the first sinner, lies, And smile in every face. And roars, and bites his iron bands; 5 Forever his dear sacred name In vain the rebel strives to rise, [hands.]

Shall shed around his milder beams : 4 Those holy gates forever bar Pollution, sin and shame;

There shall they feast on his rich love, None shall obtain admittance there, And drink full joys from living streams.

But followers of the Lamb. 6 Thus shall their mighty bliss renew, 5 He keeps the Father's book of life, Through the vast round of endless years;

There all their names are found; And the soft hand of sovereign grace The hypocrite in vain shall strive Heals all their wounds, and wipes the To tread the heavenly ground.
