Shall cause our life to fail.

4 Wake then a fong, the nobleft fong; Let heav'n and earth rejoice,

The dead shall live; the graves fhall hear Salvation, in thy voice.

H

E lives, the great Redeemer lives, (What joy the bleft affurance gives, And now before his Father God, Pleads the full merit of his blood.

2 Repeated crimes awake our fears,
And juftice arm'd with frowns appears ;
But in the Saviour's lovely face
Sweet mercy fmiles, and all i ace.

3 Hence then, ye black despairing thoughts,
Above our fears, above our faults,
His powerful interceffions rife,
And guilt recedes, and terror dies.
4 In ev'ry dark distressful hour,

When fin and Satan join their pow'r ;
Let this dear hope repel the dart,
That Jefus bears us on his heart.
5 Great advocate, almighty friend;
On him our humble hopes depend
Our caufe can never, never fail,
For Jefus pleads, and must prevail.

The archangelick trump is blown,
A voice is heard from glory's throne.
The spirit breathes on ev'ry bone;
And rends the cleaving tombs.

2 Now comes the end; the end divine;
See death, and hell, their dead refign
To Chrift, who holds the keys :
The judgment fits; the books unfold;
The actions of a world they hold ;
And there Omnifcience has enroll'd,
Myfterious, high decrees.

These books are clos'd. Then opens wide
The book of life; his book who died
For all who rofe again;

The writing in Immanuel's blood,
The fignet of the wine prefs trod,
Prevails for guilty man, with God:
A world rewards his pain.

And Ifr'el's fons, and Gentile lands,
Shall in the banquet fhare.

His bounteous hand beftows:
Wine on the lees, and well refin'd,
In rich abundance flows.

A free acceptance giv'n!
See, rebels by adopting grace,
Sit with the heirs of heav'n!

With eager appetites partake
The plenties of the board.

And fprings of life, that never dry,
In thoufand channels roll.

OUD let the tuneful trumpet found,
And fpread the joyful tidings round;
Let ev'ry foul with transport hear,
And hail the Lord's accepted year.

That you ten thousand talents owe,
When humble at his feet you fall,.
Your gracious God forgives them all."!<{"

To liberty affert your claim,

And urge the

great Redeemer's name.
