Making Wars and Jarrings ceafe,
Let us like a Flock of Sheep,
Clofe together perfevere, True by one another keep,. Each efteeming very dear,,
Altogether move : Truly fubject be the whole, Bound in Bands of trueft Love, One in Heart, in Mind, and Soul.
May we all one Faith maintain,
He will our dear Portion be,
Strive we who fhall love thee moft,
Let us Hand in Hand proceed,
Dead to Sin, to all Things dead,
While beneath us thou wilt lay.
HYMN Sitting under CHRIST'S Shadow.. LOOD of Jefu's Wounds, how good, Sounds it in our Ears and Hearts! Nothing, furely, like that Blood, Can fuch folid Blifs impart ; Oh 'tis moft divine! Weary Sinners hither fly, Laden with their crimson Sin, This blots out the dreadful Dye,
You who have the Law obey'd,
You who Righteoufnefs t' attain,,,
Turn you to Christ's Blood.
Whofo after Reft enquires,
Let him to this Blood approach;
Here may we take up our Place,
E fing to thee, thou Son of God, Who fav'd us by thy Grace; We praife thee, Son of Man, whofe Blood Redeem'd our fallen Race.
We thee acknowledge God and Lord,
Thou art by Heav'n and Earth ador'd,
To thee all Angels cry aloud,
The Cherubim and Seraphim
The Prophets goodly Fellowship,
Th' Apoftles' glorious Company
Thro' all the World thy Churches join T' acknowledge thee the Head; Father of Majefty divine,
Who ev'ry Pow'r has made.
Alfo thy true and only Son,
Alfo the Holy Ghoft we praife,
Holy Strife in praifing CHRIST.
Daughters of Zion, fing: Up, Sons of Jacob, Jefus praife, Salute th' aufpicious King.
Our Souls arife, and may our Tongue
Why ftay we then? the Lord extol ; Zion, break forth in Praise;
Join ev'ry beavenly minded Soul
Open ye everlafting Doors,
ET us, the Sheep by Jefus nam'd, Our Shepherd's Mercy blefs; Let, us whom Jefus hath redeem'd, Shew forth our Thankfulness.
Not unto us, to thee alone,
The Hofts of Spirits now with thee
To imitate them here, lo! we
Had we our Tongues like them infpir'd,
'Till we the Veil of Flesh lay down, Accept our weaker Lays:
And when, O Lord, we reach thy Throne, We'll join in nobler Praife.
