The Truth and Faithfulness of God.
E humble faints, proclaim abroad,
The honors of a faithful God,
How jul and true are all his ways,
How much above your higheft praife!

2 The words his facred lips declare,
Of his own mind the image bear:
What should him tempt, from frailty free,
Bleft in his felf-fufficiency?

3 He will not his great felf deny :

A God all truth can never lie:

As well might he his being quit,
As break his oath, or word forget.

4 Let frighten'd rivers change their courfe,
Or backward haften to their fource
Swift thro' the air let rocks be hurl'd,
And mountains like the chaff be whirl'd,

5 Let fun and fears forget to rife,
Or quit their ftations in the fkies;
Let Heav'n and earth both pass away,
Eternal truth fhall ne'er decay.

6 True to his word, God gave his Son,
To die for crimes which men had done;
Bleft pledge! he never will revoke,
A figle promise he has spoke.

Sealing their peace with God,

In realms of endless love,
Praise his dear name :

Honor and majesty,
Thro' all Eternity;
Worthy the Lamb.

REAT God of wonders! all thy ways Are matchlefs, godlike, and divine ;. But the fair glories of thy grace More godlike and unrival'd fhine : Who is a pard'ning God like thee? Or who has grace fo rich and free? 2 Crimes of fuch horror to forgive, Such guilty daring worms to ípare, This is thy grand prerogative, And none fhall in the honor fhare, Who is a pard'ning God like thee? Or who has grace lo rich and free ?

3 Angels and men, refign your claim
To pity, mercy, love and grace;
Thefe glorious crown Jehovah's name
With an incomparable blaze.
Who is a pard'ning God like thee?
Or who has grace fo rich and free?
4 In wonder loft, with trembling joy,'
We take the pardon of our God,
Pardon, for crimes of deepest dye,
A pardon feal'd with Jefus' blood.
Who is a pard'ning God like thee?
Or who has grace so rich and free?

Pardon fpoken by Chrift.

MY Saviour, let me hear thy voice

Pronounce the words of peace! And all my warmeft pow'rs fhall join To celebrate thy grace.

2 With gentle fmiles call me thy child, And fpeak my fins forgiv'n :

The accents mild fhall charm mine ear, All like the harps of heav'n.

3 Cheerful, where'er thy hand fhall lead,
The darkest path I'll tread ;
Cheerful I'll quit thefe mortal fhores,
And mingle with the dead.

No other fears we know ;
That hand, which featters pardon down,
Shall crowns of life bestow.

Let the rude barbarian fee,
That divine and glorious conqueft,
Once obtain❜d on Calvary;

Let the gofpel, let the gospel, let the gospel, Loud refound from pole to pole.

2 Kingdoms wide that fit in darkness,
Let them have the glorious light,
And from eaftern coaft to western,
May the morning chafe the night, [demption,
And redemption, and redemption, and re-
Freely purchas'd, win the day.

3 May the glorious day approaching,
From eternal darkness dawn,
And the everlasting gofpel
Spread abroad, thy holy name;
All the borders, all the borders, all the bord-
Of the great Immanuel's land.


4 Fly abroad, thou mighty gospel,
Win and conquer, never ceafe ;
May thy lafting wide dominion,
Multiply, and till increase;

Sway thy fceptre, fway thy fceptre, fway thy Saviour, all the world around.
