On the Majefty, Vengeance, Mercy, and Salvation of GOD.
Lo2how mountains' reel and shatter
At JEHOVAH's awful nod!
And, like light'ning, foon he'll scatterm
Here to own him for their God.
2 Be alarm'd, ye carelefs finners,
He to judgment° foon will come;
For his vengeance®
Will the wicked then confume!
3 Therefore never dreama of heaven In an unconverted ftate;
Or that mercy will be given,
In me a clean heart create.
4 O kneel downs before your MAKER! Ye who do not know his love:
Reft not till each is partaker
You may all his goodness" prove,
