O that Thou would'ft this Hour come down !
Defcend, Almighty GOD, defcend,
And ftrongly vindicate Thine own f

Now let the Heathens fear thy Name,
Now let the World hy Nature know,

Dart into All the melting Flame

Of Love, and make the Mountain flow.

O let thine Indignation burn,

The Lightning of thy Judgments glare,
Th' afpiring Confidence o'erturn

Of all that ftill thine Anger dare.

C c 2 4 From


4 From Heaven reveal thy vengeful Ire,

Thy Fury let the Nations prove,
Confels Thee a confuming Fire,

And tremble, till they feel thy Love.

5 Thy Power was to our Fathers known ;

A mighty GOD, and terrible ;
In Majefty Thou cameft down,

The Mountains at thy Prefence fell.

6 The Wonders Thou for them haft wrought

Thy boundlefs Power and Love proclaim,
Far above all they ask'd or thought:
And now we wait to know thy Name.

7 We wait; for fmce the World began

To Men it ne'er by Men was Ihew'd :
Thou only canft Thy felf explain,
GOD only founds the Depths of GOD,

8 Eye hath not feen, Ear hath not heard,

By Heart conceiv'd it cannot be,
The Blifs Thou haft for Him prepar'd,
Who waits in humble Faith for Thee.

9 Thou meeteft him that dares rejoice

In Hope of thy Salvation near ;
Who wants, while he obeys jhy Voice,
The perfect Love that cafts out Fear.

10 In Works of Rightonfnefs employ'd

Who Thee remembers in Thy Ways,
The facred Channels of thy Grace.

1 1 But lo! thine Anger kindled is,

And juftly might for ever burn;
We have forfook the Path of Peace :
How fhall our wand'ring Souls return?

12 In


1 2 In Thine appointed Ways we wait,

The Ways thy Wifdom hath enjoin'd;
Thy faving Grace we here fhall meet ;
For every one that leeks fhall find.

1 3 Nor can we thus thy Wrath appeafe;

We and our Works are all unclean,
As filthy Rags our Righteoufnefs,
Our Good is 111, our Virtue Sin.

14 Like withered Leaves we fade away,

We all deferve thy Wrath to feel,
Swift as the Wind our Sins convey,
And fweep our guilty Souls to Hell.

1 5 Not one will call upon thy Name,

Stir himfelf up thy Grace to fee,

The LORD His Righteoufnefs to claim,

And boldly to take hold on Thee.

1 6 For O ! thy Face is turn'd afide,

Since we refus'd t' obey thy Will;
Thou haft confumM us for our Pride,
. Thy heavy Hand confumes us ftill.

1 7 But art thou not our Father Now ?

Our Father Now Thou furely art:
Humbly beneath thy Frown we bow,
We feek Thee with a trembling Heart.

i g The Potter Thou, and We the Clay;

Behold us at thy Footftool kid,
In Anger caft us not away,

The Creatures whom thine Hands have made.

, o O let thine Anger rage no more,

Remember not Iniquity;
See LORD, and all our Sins pafs o'er,.
Thine own Peculiar People fee.

C C 3, 2O Jer u-


ic Jerufuleni in Ruins lies,

A Wildernefs thy Cities are ;
- A Den of Thieves thy Temple is,

No longer now the Houfe of Prayer.

z \ Where humbly low our Fathers bow'd,

And Thee with joyful Lips ador'd,
Idolaters profanely croud,

And take die Altar for its LORD.

22 The facred Means Thyfelf ordain'd,

Others rejeft with impious Hafte ;
By Thefe blalphem'd, by Thofe profan'd
Our pleafant Things are all laid wafte.

23 And wilt Thou not this Havock fee,

For which we ever, ever mourn ?
Still mail we cry in vain to Thee ?
Return, our gracious LORD, return?

24 Hold not thy Peace at Sion's Woe,

O caft not out thy People's Prayer,
Regard thy fuffering Church below,

And fpare, the Weeping Remnant fpare.

25 Thy fallen Tabernacle raife,

Thy Chaftifement at laft remove,
That all Mankind may fing thy Praiie,

Thou GOD of Truth, Thou GOD of Love!

HEBREWS iv. 9.
rcmalneth therefore a REST to
the People of GOD.

j IT ORD, 1 believe a Reft remains
_|_^ To all thy People known,
A Reft, where Pure Enjoyment reigns,

Aad Thou art lov'd Alone. 2 A


2 A Reft, where all our Soul's Defire

Is fixt on Things above,
Where Doubt, and Pain, and Fear expire,
Caft out by Perfect Love.

3 A Reft of Lafting Joy and Peace,

Where all is calm within :
' Tis there from our own Works we ceafe,
From Pride, and Self, and Sin.

4 Our Life is hid with CHRIST in GODj

The Agony is o'er :
We wreftle not with Flefh and Blood,
Weftrwe with Sin no more.

5 Our Sp'rit is right, our Hart is clean,

Our Nature is renew'd,
We cannot, no, we Cannot Sin,
For we are born of GOD.

6 From ev'ry evil Motion freed,

(The SON hath made us free)
On all the Pow'rs of Hell we tread,
In glorious Liberty.

7 Redeem' d, we walk on Holy Ground,

In CHRIST we cannot err:

No Lion in that Way is found,

No ravenous Beaft is there !

8 Safe in the Way of Life, above

Death, Earth, and Hell we rife;
We find, when perfected in Love,
Our long-fought Paradife.

9 Within that Eden we retire,

We reft in JESU'S Name:

It guards us, as a Wall of Fire,

And as a Sword of Flame.

10 O


10 O that I now The Reft might know,

Believe, and enter in!
Now, SA v i OUR, Now the Power bellow,
And let me ceafe from Sin.

1 1 Remove this Hardnefs from my Heart,

This Unbelief remove,
To me the Reft of Faith impart,
The Sabbath of thy Love.

1 2 I groan from Sin to be fet free,

From Self to be releas'd;
O take me, take me into Thee,
Mine Everlafting Reft.

1 3 I would be Thine, Thou know'ft I wou'd,

And have Thee all mine own :
Thee, O mine All-fufficient Good,
I want, and Thee alone.

14 Thy Name to me, thy Nature grant;

This, only this be given,
Nothing befides my GOD I want,
Nothing in Earth or Heaven.

15 Come, O my SAVIOUR, come away,

Into my Soul defcend,
No longer from thy Creature ftay,
My Author, and my End.

1 6 The Blifs Thou haft for me prepared

No longer be delay'd :
Come my exceeding Great Reward,
For whom I firft was made.

17 Come, Father, Son, and Holy Ghoft,

And feal me thine Abode,
Let all I am in Thee be loft,
Let all I am be GOD!

When all the Secrets of my Heart

Whither, O whither art Thou fled
Who hath believ'd the Tidings? who?
Weary of ftruggling with my Pain
Where fhall my wond'ring Soul begin

When CHRIST had left his Flock below
What Morn on Thee with fweeter Ray
While Sicknefs (hakes the Houfe of Clay
When gracious LORD, ah tell me when
Where mall I lay my weary Head
Wherewith, O GOD, fhall I draw near
When I was a Little Child
Where, my Soul, is now thy Boaft
