2 They give a loose to wild desires ;
But let the sinners know
Of all the works they do. 8 The Judge prepares his throne on high;
The frighted earth and seas
And flee before his face.
And stand the fiery test? I give all mortal joys away,
To be forever biest.
HYMN 91. L. M. [b] Advice to youth ; or, old age and death in an un converted state. Eccles. xii. 1, 7. Isa. Ixv. 20. 1
TOW in the heat of youthful blood,
Behold the months come hast ning on
shall “My joys are gone.? 2 Behold the aged sinner goes,
Laden with guilt and heavy woes,
With endless curses on bis head! 3 The dust returns to dust again;
The soul, in agonies of pain,
But hears her doom, and sinks to hell. \ Eternal King! I fear thy name ;
Teach me to know how frail I am ;
HYMN 92.-S. M. Christ the wisdom of God. Prov. viii. 1, 22, 32. 1
Deserves it no regard ?
His everlasting Son,
Creation, was begun.
Before the solid land,
I dwelt at his right hand.
And built them, I was there,
And marsbal every star.
And spread the flowing deep, I gave the food a firm decree
In its own bounds to keep.) 6 Upon the empty air
The earth was balanc'd well; With joy I saw the mansion, where
The sons of men should dwell. 7 My busy thoughts at first
On their salvation ran,
Was fashion'd to a man.
Happy the man that keeps my ways,
The man that shuns them dies.''
HYMN 93. L. M. .
Wisdom obeyed or resisted.
Prov. viii. 34, 36.
Keeps daily watch before my gates,
And at my feet for mercy waits.
Immortal wealth and beavenly gain;
Life, and the favour of the Lord.

HYMN 94. C. M. (b) Justification by faith, not by works ; or, the law condemns, grace justifies. Rom. iii. 19, 22.
AIN are the hopes the sons of men
On their own works have built ;
And all their actions guilt. 2 Let Jews and Gentiles stop their mouths,
Without a murm’ring word,
Guilty before the Lord.
To justify us now,
Is all the law can do.
Jesus, how glorious is thy grace!
When in thy name we trust,
That makes the sinner just.
HYMN 95. C. M. [*] Regeneration, John i. 18. and iii. 3, &c. 1
COT all the outward forms on earth, Nor will of man, nor blood, nor birtb,
Can raise a soul to heaven.
Creates us heirs of grace;
A new peculiar race.
Biows on the sons of flesh,
Aud forrns the man afresh.
From the long sleep of death ;
And praise employs our breath.

HYMN 96. C. M.
 Election excludes boasting. 1 Cor. i. 26, 31. 1 UT
But few of noble race,
Almighty King of Grace!
For sons and heirs of God;
On honourable blood.
He calls the fool, and makes him know
The myst'ries of his geace; To bring aspiring wisdom low,
And all its pride abase. 4 Nature has all its glories lost,
When brought before his throne; No flesh shall in his presence boast,
But in the Lord alone.
HYMN 97. L. M.

We lie till Christ restores the light; Wisdom
descends to heal the blind, And chase the darkness of the mind. 2 Our guilty souls are drown'd in tears,
Till his atoning blood appears :
And sing, The Lord our Righteousness. 3 Our very frame is mix'd with sin,
His Spirit makes our natures clean;
At once to cleanse and pardon too, * Jesus beholds where Satan reigns,
Binding his slaves in heavy chains;
The iron bondage from our necks.
Grace, wisdom, power and righteousness;
