Sinners (hall learn thy wondrous grace,

And saints thy goodness own.
4 Our tongues fhäll thy redeeming love

With facred rapture tell ;
And loud resound Immanuel's praise,
Who saves from death and hell.




Zeal of the Lord of Hosts.
ZEAL of the Lord of Hofts! thy zeal,

Shall of tranfgreflions make an end,

And righteousness bring in.
2 Yes! righteousness divine, complete,

The righteousness of God,
Imputed to the guilty soul,

By faith in Jesus' blood.
3 And will that God who gave his fon,

Refuse this faith to give?
Sure, no. It cannot, cannot be ;
Man shall believe and live.


Aaron, and the true Melchizedek.
JESUS, in thee our eyes behold

A thousand glories more,
Thap sparkled in the gems and gold
The fons of Aaron wore.
2 They first their own burnt-off'rings brought

To purge themselves from fin

Thy life was pure without a spot,

And all thy nature clean.
3. Once in the circuit of a year,

With blood, but not his own,
Aaron within the veil appears,

Before the golden throne.
4 But Chrift by his own pow'rful blood,

Ascends above the skies,
And in the presence of our God,

Shews his own sacrifice.
5 Jesus the king of glory reigns,

On Zion's heav'nly hill,
Looks like a lamb that once was slain,

And wears his priesthood fill. 6 He ever lives to intercede

Before his father's face :
Give him, my soul thy cause to plead,
Nor doubt the Father's grace.

Achor's vale, a door of hope.
FROM tribulation’s gloomy vale,

Where Jefus bow'd, where Jesus bled,
The suff'ring, conq’ring Lamb of God,

Shall lift on high, his glorious head. 2 For rebel man, the Saviour died :

For man, he burst the rocky tomb ;
And opes, by death, a door of hope,

That enters on the world to come.
3 The bow, the sword, the King of death,

Christ Jesus' death has took away ;



And Achor's vale, this vale of tears,
Now beams with everlasting day.

The Saviour promis'd long! Let ev'ry heart prepare a throne,

In Satan's bondage held ;
The gates of brass before him burst,

The iron fetters yield.

To clear the mental ray ;

Substance of the Levitical Priesthood.
'HÉ true Meffiah now appears,
The types are all withdrawn ;

So fly the shadows and the fars,

Before the rising dawn.
2 No smoking sweets, nor bleeding lambs,

Nor kid nor bullock lain :
Incense and spice of costly names

Would all be burnt in vain.
3 Aaron must lay his robes away,

His mitre and his velt,
When God himself comes down to be

The off'ring, and the priest.
4 He took our mortal flesh, to show

The wonders of his love ;
For us he paid his life below,

And prays for us above.
5 Father, he cries, forgive their kins,

For I myfelf have di'd ;
And then he shows his open’d veins,
And pleads his wounded fide.

The Typer and Prophecies fulfilled in Chrif.
BEHOLD the woman's promis?d feed !

Behold the great Melliah come !
Behold the prophets all agreed

To give him the superior room! 2 Abram the faint, rejoic'd of old,

When visions of the Lord he saw ;
Moses, the man of God, foretold

This great fulfiller of his law.
