There dwells the Lord our King,
The Lord our Righteousness,
The Prince of Peace :
His Kingdom ftill maintains ;
For ever reigns.
He guards them by his Side,
His spotlefs Bride :
With Groves of living Joys-
He still supplies.
They all exulting stand;
Thro all their Land;
And swell the growing Fame,
The wond'rous NAME.
The great Arch-angels fing,
66 ·ALMIGHTY KING!
WHO WAS, AND IS, THE SAME;
" AND EVERMORE SHALL BE ; « JEHOVAH-FATHER-GREAT I AM
66. WE WORSHIP Thee."
Before the Saviour's Face
The ransom'd Nations bow;
For ever new ;

Give Thanks to God on high;
They ever cry :
(I join the heav'nly Lays,) All Might and Majesty are thine,
And endless Praise.

Thro'Darkness I fearless could walk by his Light, His Rays were my Comfort, his Shield was my
Might. When Jefus was with me, by Day or by Night, Tho' Darkness was round me, my Soul was still
Light; My Joys and my Comforts enraptur'd my Mind, While under his Shadow I sweetly reclin'd, What Time in Communion with Jesus I spent, 'Twas Heay'n all over wherever I went ; And oft when his Kindnefs I've felt on my Heart, In Raptures I pray'd, he would never depart. His Mercy and Love was the Theme of my Song, To praise and adore him the Joy of my Tongue: To talk of his Goodnefs my daily Delight, To think of his Kindnefs my Pleasure by Night. But when He is absent, my Comforts are gone, My Heart is dejected, and hard as a Stone; Nor Nature or Creature Delight can impart, Till Jesus return, the fole Joy of my Heart, That e'er I should grieve thee, my Lord and my
Lamb, It vexes my Souland o'erwhelmś me with Shame; The Sweets of thy Favor, and Love felt before, Restore, my dear Jesus, and leave me no more, .
