Make ev'ry beast and bird submit,

And lay the fishes at his feet.
3 But O! what brighter glories wait

To crown the second Adam's state?
What honors shall thy San adorn ;,

Who condescended to be born ? 4 See him below his angels made ;

See him in dust among the dead,
To fave a ruin'd world from sin ;

But he fhall reign with pow'r divine.
5 The world to come, redeem'd from all

The mis’ries that attend the fall,
New made and glorious shall submit
At our exalted Saviour's feet.


Abel's Blood ! a

LOOD has a voice to pierce tbe skies,

Revenge! the blood of Abel cries :
But the dear stream when Christ was

slain Speaks peace as loud from ev'ry vein. 2 Pardon and peace from God on high ;

Behold, he lays his vengeance by ;
And rebels that deserve his sword,
Become the fav'rites of the Lord.

3 To Jefus let our praises raise,

Who gave his life a fa-fice :
Now he appears before his God,
And for cur pardon, pleads his blood.


Abraham'; Rejoicing.

OD will provide, ihe Patriarch frid,

And faith gives ev'ry doubt away ; Fearless he climes Morich's mound,

And sees afar Christ Jesus' day.
2 Yes ! God provides, and God accepts

His facrifice, and his alone ::
No blood of beálts, not Alraham's fon,

Nor ought, lave Christ, can e'er atene. 3

Ten thousand blessings crown the Lamb,
The Lamb of God that once was flaia !
Behold he lives, he intercedes,
And ranfom'd nations thout Amen.

Shall glorify thy glorious game.

Noah; or, the Covenant of the Bow. ·LET

nations who tremble in fear of a flood, Look up to the cloud, see the bow of their

God, And resting in peace on the promise divine,

Remember 'twas made for the ages of time: 3 Then Jesus, the Saviour, traoflating the bow,

From thence to his head, and descending below,
Shall finish the myâ'ry, that mercy began,

Bleft fullness of grace, and salvation for man. 3 Hail Alpha, Omega, the first and the last !

Thy purposes future, the present, and past,
All centre in one-'tis thy crown on the throne,
That the kingdoms of carth, become Lord,

Thy arch as the Master, mid mansions of day,
Extend from the cast, to the night of the welt,
And closing of time, give thy laborers rest.

On holy Sinai givin,
Or sent to men by Moses' hands,
Çan bring us fafe to Heav'n.


2 'Tis not the blood wlich Aaron spilt,

Nor smoke of sweetest smell,
Can buy a pardon for our guilt,

Or fave our soul from heil.

At God's immediate will,
And in the desert yields to death,

Upon th' appointed hils.

The tribes of Israel Itane,
While Mofes bow'd his head, and di'd,

Suct of the promis'd' lack

'He'll bring your rises to reft,
Si frihe Saviour's name exceeds
The ruler and the prieft.
