Make ev'ry beast and bird submit,
And lay the fishes at his feet.
To crown the second Adam's state?
Who condescended to be born ? 4 See him below his angels made ;
See him in dust among the dead,
But he fhall reign with pow'r divine.
The mis’ries that attend the fall,

Abel's Blood ! a
LOOD has a voice to pierce tbe skies,
Revenge! the blood of Abel cries :
slain Speaks peace as loud from ev'ry vein. 2 Pardon and peace from God on high ;
Behold, he lays his vengeance by ;

Who gave his life a fa-fice :

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.

Nor ought, lave Christ, can e'er atene. 3
Ten thousand blessings crown the Lamb,
Ifaac, at Peace with Philiftia.
See Philistines friendly come ; ! Hark! they bail one common Lord;
One by him, by them ador'd.
Met in peacë, they dwell as friends ;
Jew and Gentile binds in love.
Bid all nations bend the knee ;
Bring the wand'rers home, as one.
Peace in heav'n by Jesus' blood;
Thou the truth, the life, the way,
Jacob's Prophecy of Shiloh.
As death illumes his closing eyes ;
And Judah claims no more the praise.
Shiloh ! afcend salvation's throne,
Leader ! Commander, guide us home! 3 Speak but the word, and light shall be ;
That light of life which points to thee ;,
Melchizedek a Type of Christ.
Make a wounded sidner whole !-
Let not thy sweet vifits cease !
With thy sacred bread and wine !
Half of which cannot be told.. 3.
Hail Melchizedek divine ;
All my pow'rs before thee fall,

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,
Bleft fullness of grace, and salvation for man. 3 Hail Alpha, Omega, the first and the last !
Thy purposes future, the present, and past,
Thy arch as the Master, mid mansions of day,
