2 Life is the hour, that God has given

To 'scape from hell, and fly to heaven;
The day of grace, and mortals may

Secure the blessings of the day.
3 There are no acts of pardon pass’d

In the cold grave, to which we haste;
But torment, horror, and despair
Shall meet remorseless sinners there.

4 Then, what our thoughts design to do, May we, with all our might, pursue; Since no device, nor work is found, Wisdom, nor grace beneath the ground.

HYMN LIII. - C. M. 1 Hear what the voice from heaven pro

claims, For all the pious dead; Sweet is the savour of their names,

And soft their sleeping bed. 2 They die in Jesus, and are blest,

How kind their slumbers are ! From sufferings and from sins releas'd,

And freed from every snare.
3 Far from this world of toil and strife,

They're present with the Lord;
The labours of their mortal life

End in a large reward. .

Fast.

HYMN LIV. P. M. 1 DREAD Jehovah ! God of nations,

From thy temple in the skies, Hear thy people's supplications,

Now for their deliverance rise. Lo! with deep contrition turning,

Humbly at thy feet we bend; Fasting, praying, weeping, mourning,

Hear us, spare us, and defend.

2 Though our sins, our hearts confounding,

Long and loud for vengeance call, Thou hast mercy more abounding;

Jesus' blood can cleanse them all; Let that mercy veil transgression,

Let that blood our guilt efface; Save thy people from oppression,

Save from spoil thy holy-place.

3 Hear, O God, the vows we render;

With our hosts to battle go:
Shield the head of each defender,

And confound the haughty foe:
So, when ceased the battle's raging,

Thine shall be the victor's praise ;
And, in holy bonds engaging,

We will serve Thee all our days,

4 Now we may bow before his feet,

And venture near the Lord;
No fi'ry cherub guards his seat,

Nor double-flaming sword.
The peaceful gates of heav'nly bliss

Are open'd by the Son;
High let us raise our notes of praise,

And reach th' Alinighty throne. 6 To Thee ten thousand thanks we bring.

Great Advocate on high; And glory to th' eternal King,

That lays his fury by.

END OF THE HYMNS.
