PREFACE.

TH E Worship of a Christian on Earth confists oiConfeJsion}Prayert Thanksgiving, arid Praise. Confession and Prayer belong to him as guilty, weak, and needy. Thank/giving as the Object of sparing Mercy, providential Goodness, and special Grace.—But Praise properly terminates in God. It flows from a Love and Admiration of his Excellencies and Attributes, wherever,. whenever, or on whomsoever displayed.

A 2 Now

Now abideth Confession, Prayer, Praise, these three; but the greatest of these is Praise: for, when Time Jhall be no more, and the Believer shall neither have Sins to confess, nor Wants to make known, frefli and brighter Discoveries of intrinfic Excellence, redeeming Glory, and condescending Grace will constrain his Praise to burst forth in

Glory, Honour, Praise and Power,
Be unto the Lamb for ever. Rev. 5. i3.
Jesus Christ is our Redeemer,
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
Praise the Lord.

PSALMS And HYMNS.

HYMN I. CM.
Free Grace.

GRACE, how exceeding sweet to those
Who seel their sinful State,
Sunk and distrest, in Grace they find
A Peace, divinely great.

'Tis Grace, free Grace, most sweetly calls,

Directly come, who will;
Just as you are; for Christ receives

Poor helpless Sinners still.—Luke i5. 2.

We thirst, O Lord ; give us, this Day,

To taste more of this Grace; More of that Stream which from the Rock

Flow'd thro' the Wilderness.—i Cor. i0. 4.

Free Grace alone doth seed our Souls,

It keeps us inly poor;
Lord! Grant that nothing else but Grace

May rule for evermore!
