God ready to forgive ; or, Despair sinful. 1 W HAT mean these jealousies and fears ?

W As if the Lord was loth to save,
Or lov'd to see us drench'd in tears,

Or sink with sorrow to the grave: 1
2 Does he want slaves to grace his throne ?

Or rules he by an iron rod ?
Loves he the deep despairing groan?

Is he a tyrant, or a God?
3 Not all the sins which we have wrought

So much his tender bowels grieve,
As this unkind injurious thought, i

That he's unwilling to forgive it
4 What tho' our crimes are black as night,
: Or glowing like the crimson morn!

Immanuel's blood will make them white

As snow thro’ the pure æther borne ' 5 Lord, 'tis amazing grace we own," ;

And well may rebel worm's surprise ;

But, was not thy incarnate Son
. A most amazing sacrifice?
6 I've found a ransom, saith the Lord,...

No humble' penitent shall die:
Lord, we would now believe thy word,
And thy unbounded mercies try!, STOGDON.

Well pleased with those beyond the grave. 4 Jesus, my, elder brother, lives;

Shall make the promise vain ;''.

And shall, while endless years endure.
