3 Hence ftill he intercedes
For Adam's fallen race,-
And God, in anfwer to our needs,
Relieves our cafe!

He grace and glory gives,
And no good thing withholds;
Thus from the ferpent's pow'r retrieves,
Whom he infolds.

4 With comfort, peace, and joy
We are already bleft;

And fhould all hell their force employ
Us to moleft:

Through ev'ry danger led,

Drawn by the bands of love,
We follow after Chrift, our HEAD,
To realms above!

5 There angels do rejoice
For ever round the throne;
Inceffantly with heart and voice
They join in one:
Much more to magnify,
Come, brethren, likewife then,
And let us praise the Lord most High!

Amen, amen.

Neither let us anfwer, like the ancient unbelieving Jews,-bow can this man give us bis flesh to eat? as though he had meant that they should eat fome outward thing; for it is plain that he was not pointing them to any outward thing or carnal ordinance whatever, but to that fpiritual communion and fellowship with the Father, which can only be enjoyed in and through the Son, by the powerful operation and influence of the Holy Spirit.

On the Priesthood of Chrift, and the efficacious Power of his atoning Blood.



HOU great high Prieft! thy blood alone 8
Doth for our fins atonements make:
It pleads as ftill before God's throne,
And we are fpared for thy fake!
2 Its truly efficacious pow'r

Difplays the fulness of thy grace,
By which, in ev'ry trying hour,
We cheerfully thy crofs embrace.
3 We for thy fake count all things drofs
But as they help our fouls to thee;
And hence we welcome pain and loss,
In hopes of endless liberty.

4 Still may we prefsh towards the prize,
Faith views in yon bright world above,-
Until before our ravifh'd eyes,
The God appears we unfeen love!


For Purity.


LESSED are all the pure in heart,
For they with comfort fhall fee God!
When the ungodly i muft depart
To feel his fin-avenging rod:
There they will (though in forrow) tell
That God is juftk to them in hell.
