6 Assured that though we labour now,
We labour not in vain : But shall, through our redeeming Lord, A crown of life obtain.
(C. M. MANCHESTER.) They shall be mine, saith the Lord, &c. Mal. iii. 16-18. 1 While sinners utter boasting words,
And glory in their shame, The Lord, well pleased, an ear affords
To those who fear his name. 2 Whatever good this ransom'd race
Or think, or do, or say, Is noted in his book of
And joyfully expect,
His jewels shall collect.
A poor and suffering few,
And bring them forth to view.
Who are the truly blest,
(S. M. SHIRLAND.) The judgment day the time to find retribution. Heb. iv. 12. 1 The word of Christ our Lord,
With whom we have to do,
Is sharper than a two edged sword,
To pierce the sinner through. 2 No heart can be conceal'd,
From his all-piercing eye,
Naked, without disguise.
He hears them when they pray; And treasures up their sighs and tears
Unto the judgment-day. 4 He sees the wicked too ;
And will repay them soon, For all the evil deeds they do,
And all they would have done.* 5 We soon must all
appear Before his awful throne, And the decisive sentence hear
Of joy, or woe, unknown,
To guide our steps aright;
Among thy saints in light.
The second coming of Christ.
• Matt. v. 28.
Thousand thousand saints attending
Swell the triumph of his train:
Heaven and earth shall flee away;
Hear the trump proclaim the day; “ Come to judgment ! “Come to judgment, come away !" 3 Now redemption, long expected,
See in solemn pomp appear!
Now shall meet him in the air:
High on thine eternal throne :
Claim the kingdom for thine own :
(c. M. WINDSOR.)
Yea now is close at hand,
Before their Judge shall stand.
In hopeless anguish mourn !
Better for them, oh! better far,
That they had not been born. 3 “ Fall on us, rocks; ye mountains, fall,
“ Our guilty heads to hide: “ For ah ! this day of fiery wrath
“What sinners may abide ?”* 4 Hark to the sentence from the throne !
While earth and heaven retire; “I know you not; depart accursed
“To everlasting fire." +
Down to the abyss of hell,
For ever doom'd to dwell. 6 Sinner ! awake- and pause--and think
This doom how canst thou bear?
The future happiness of the saints. i Lo! round the throne at God's right hand
The saints in countless myriads, stand;
every tongue redeem'd to God, Array'd in garments wash'd in blood. 2. Through tribulation great they came;
And bore the cross, and scorn'd the shame:
In God's eternal glory blest.
† Matt. vii. 23.
The tear is wiped from every eye,
And sorrow yields to endless joy.
And sing the triumphs of his grace:
And thus the loud hosanna raise.
“ Through endlss years to live and reign, “ Thou hast redeem'd us by thy blood, “ And made us kings and priests to God.”
The judgment day.
When heaven and earth shall pass away, What power shall be the sinner's stay ?
How shall he meet that dreadful day?
The flaming heavens together roll,
The high trump swells that wakes the dead. 3 Oh! on that day, that wrathful day,
When man to judgment wakes from clay,
