2 Life is the hour, that God has given
To 'scape from hell, and fly to heaven;
Secure the blessings of the day.
In the cold grave, to which we haste;
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.
They're present with the Lord;
End in a large reward. .
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:
And confound the haughty foe:
Thine shall be the victor's praise ;
We will serve Thee all our days,
4 Now we may bow before his feet,
And venture near the Lord;
Nor double-flaming sword.
Are open'd by the Son;
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.
