Swear not at all, (the holy God hath faid!)

Unto God, who all things made,
Vain mortals! why fo fond of pride?

Thee will I praise, my God and King,
Thee will I praife, thou God of love,
The God of truth! who cannot lie!

The mighty God! who form'd the hills,
The mighty God! let nations own,
The mem'ry of the juft is bleft

Thou Author of my peace,
Thou God of glorious majesty!
Thou great high Prieft! thy blood alone
Thou jealous God! to whom is known
Thou SUN of righteousness
Thy favour, Lord, I now implore,
To all the world the Lord hath fent
To God are all my fecrets known
To-day fhould God's archangel come,
To God I offer all my pow'rs
To God who into being brought
To Jew and Gentile, just the fame,
To my immortal foul which bears
To fave, O God, do thou arife,
To thee, the living God, I cry
Tremble and quake, ye wicked race,
Tremendous God! by thy command,
Up to thy throne above
Vouchfafe to hear and fave me, Lord,
We'll now lay down to reft,
We meet in thy ways
We want the happy art to learn,
What are my light affliction here
What cruel monfters are the human race
What tongue can tell the joy divine,
What vaft deftruction in the earth
What vanity of vanities
When I arife and leave my tomb,
When fhall I hear the trumpet found,
Where virtue in her place refides,
Who is like unto thee, O Lord,
Why, Oh! my foul art thou caft down?
With heart and voice I'll praise thy name,
With joy the faints of the moft High
With pity, gracious God, draw near,
Xacca, (as records teach us to believe
Year after year rolls round apace,
Ye mortal men, in time prepare
Ye ranfom'd, all fing
Ye faints of God rejoice,
Ye faints who love and fear the Lord,
Ye weary wand'rers from the way of peace
Zion God's chofen place
Zion redeem'd from fin fhall be
Zion fhout, behold thy King!
On the Creation, Fall, and Reftoration.

By his creating word;
Was alfo at the first obey'd,"
And own'd the fov'reign Lord!
God made, and likewife gave him EvE,
But Satand did them both deceive.
2 Alarming fate! alas they felle,
And were condemned to dief:
Sin fully fitted them for hell,
And their whole progeny;
But from this wretched, hopeless state,
The promis'd feed1 did them translate1!
