Come then, and, added to thy many crowns,
Receive yet one, the crown of all the earth,
Thou who alone art worthy!. It was thine
By ancient covenant, ere Nature's birth;
And thou hast made it thine by purchase since,
And overpaid its value with thy blood.
Thy saints proclaim thee King; and in their hearts
Thy title is engraven with a pen -

Gives courage to their foes, who, could they see
The dawn of thy Last Advent, long desired,
Would creep into the bowels of the hills,
And flee for refuge to the falling rocks.

~ PREFACE TO

THE FIRST EDITION.

THE personal presence of the Redeemer on earth during the Millennium was the prevailing expectation of the early Christian Church. With the progress of error, however, this doctrine also became corrupted; and, in consequence, was at length almost entirely discarded as unscriptural. Still it has been the hope of a few in all subsequent ages, although for many centuries the attention of the Church in general has not been directed to the subject. But as the time approaches when the orthodoxy of our creed must be decided by the event, the question of its divine authority assumes anew interest, and a more urgent call is addressed to us to examine the foundation on which our opinions rest. A stricter investigation of Scripture on the subject has compelled the author of the following pages to relinquish, as untenable, the sentiments he formerly entertained, and to rank himself among the number of those who are “looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of

the Great God and our Saviour, Jesus Christ,” as an event A
