1 But peace and truth and love, Were brought by Christ, a nobler name,
Descending from above. 2 Amidst the house of God,
Their diff'rent works were done; Moses a faithful servant stood,
But Christ a faithful Son. 03 Then to his new commands
Be strict obedience paid ;
The Sovereign and the Head. e 4. The man who durst despise
The law that Moses broughtp Behold! how terribly he dies
For his presumptuous fault. e 5 But sorer vengeance falls
On that rebellious race,
And dare resist his grace.

Various success of the Gospel. . 1 Cor. i, 23, 24 ; 2 Cor. ii, 16; 1 Cor. iii, 6, 7. CHRIST and his cross is all our theme;

Like showers of heavenly rain, In vain Apollos sows the ground, And Paul may plant in vain.

Brings distant prospects homeOf things a thousand years ago,
Or thousand years to come. 3 By faith, we know the worlds were made,
By God's almighty word;
By faith obey'd the Lord.
Built by th' eternal hands; o And faith assures us, though we die,
That heavenly building stands.

When she receiv'd the word; Thus the believing Jailer gave
His household to the Lord.

Put off the body of our sin ? 0 2 Our souls receive diviner breath,
Rais'd from corruption, guilt, and death; o So from the grave did Christ arise,
And lives to God above the skies.

Fall down before his face ;
ur souls corruptiod Christ Skies.
p 'Father, I've done thy justice wrong,
Nor can deserve thy grace.' 0 4 He said, -and hasten'd to his home,
To seek his father's love; -The father saw the rebel come, e And all his bowels move. u 5 He ran and fell upon his neck,

For follies he had done. 0 6 Take off his clothes of shame and sin;' 0 (The father gives command ;) O‘Dress him in garments white and clean;

U Our guilt and our disgrace we own; a Great God we own th' unhappy name,
Whence sprung our nature, and our shame!

That sent to save our ruin'd race. 4 We sing thine everlasting Son, Who join'd our nature to his own: g Adam, the Second, from the dust
Raises the ruins of the first. e 5 [By the rebellion of one man,
Through all his seed the mischief ran; -And by one man's obedience now,
Are all his seed made righteous too. 0 6 Where sin did reign and death abound,
There have the sons of Adam found

Heb. iv, 16; v, 7; Matt. xii, 20.
W Of our High Priest above; e His heart is made of tenderness,
His bowels melt with love.
He knows our feeble frame;
For he has felt the same.
The great Redeemer stood; e While Satan's fiery darts he bore,
And did resist to blood. p 4 He, in the days of feeble flesh,
Pour'd out his cries and tears, e And, in his measure, feels afresh
What ev'ry member bears.

In the distressing hour.
