3 The promis'd land of peace
Faith keeps in constant view;
We now are passing through! 4 Here often from our eyes
Clouds hide the light divine;
Our Sun will always shine!
And fears distress us sore:
And we shall weep no more! 6 Lord, pardon our complaints!
We follow at thy call;
Will make amends for all!
The True Aaron. Lev, viii. 7-9. i See Aaron, God's anointed priest,
Within the vail appear,
Presenting Israel's prayer. % The plate of gold, which crowns his brows,
His holiness describes;
The names of all the tribes.
Before the mercy-seat;
Arise with odour sweet.
4 Urim and Thummiin near his heart,
In rich engravings worn,
To teach, and to adorn.
A greater Priest than he:
For you, my friends, and me!
Deep on his heart engravid,
Of all his love has sav'd. 7 In him a holiness complete,
Light and perfection shine;
A Saviour all divine!
For sinners, is his own;
Perfume the holy throne.
Though I ain weak and vile;
And see the Father smile,
Deut. xxxiii. 25. 1 Afflicted saint, to Christ draw near,
Thy Saviour's gracious promise hear; His faithful word declares to thee, That as thy days thy strength shall be.
2 Let not thy heart despónd, and say,
How shall I stand the trying day?
That as thy days thy strength shall be. 3 Thy faith is weak, thy foe is strong,
And, if the conflict should be long,
For as thy days thy strength shall be. 4 Should persecution rage and flame,
Still trust in thy Redeemer's name;
That as thy days thy strength shall be. 5 When called to bear the weighty cross,
Or sore affliction, pain, or loss,
Still as thy days thy strength shall be. 6 When ghastly death appears in view,
Christ's presence shall thy fears subdue;
1. Cor. vi. 11.
Salvation's theme pursue !
For “ such were some of you!" 2 From head to foot defil'd by sin,
Deep in rebellion too;
“And such were some of you !".
3 'Tis all of sov'reign grace
ye Do not as others do, Who seek the road to misery,
For “ such were some of you!" 4 Death, in the error of his ways,
The sinner will pursue,
“And such were some of you!"
Ye highly favoured few,
But “ such were some of you!" 6 As ye are chosen from the rest,
To grace the praise is due;
For “such were some of you!"
With one consent let all the earth
And sing before hiin songs of praise ! 2 Convinc'd that he is God alone,
From whom both we and all proceed;
3 O enter then his temple gate,
Thence to his courts devoutly press,
4 For he's the Lord, supremely good,
His mercy is for ever sure;
mercy, Lord, incline;
On all thy saints to shine.
May through the world be known;
And thy salvation own.
To celebrate thy fame;
To praise thy glorious naine!
Dissolv'd in pious mirth,
Shalt govern all the earth.
To celebrate thy fame;
