PSALM 49. Second Part. C.M.
Death and the resurrection. (cont.)

  1 When death hath brought you down to dust,
   Your pomp shall rise no more.
  2 The last great day shall change the scene;
   When will that hour appear?
When shall the just revive, and reign
   O'er all that scorn'd them here!
  3 God will my naked soul receive,
   When sep'rate from the flesh;
And break the prison of the grave,
   To raise my bones afresh.
  4 Heav'n is my everlasting home,
   Th' inheritance is sure;
Let men of pride their rage resume,
   But I'll repine no more.

PSALM 50. First Part. C.M.
The last judgment.

  1 THE Lord, the Judge, before his throne
   Bids the whole earth draw nigh;
The nations near the rising sun,
   And near the western sky.
  2 No more shall bold blasphemers say,
   "Judgment will ne'er begin;"
No more abuse his long delay
   To impudence and sin.
  3 Thron'd on a cloud our God shall come,
   Bright flames prepare his way;
Thunder and darkness, fire and storm
   Lead on the dreadful day.
  4 Heav'n from above his call shall hear,
   Attending angels come;
And earth and hell shall know and fear
   His justice, and their doom.
  5 "But gather all my saints (he cries)
   "That made their peace with God,

PSALM 50. First Part. C.M.
The last judgment. (cont.)

  5 "By the Redeemer's sacrifice,
   "And seal'd it with his blood.
  6 "Their faith and works brought forth to light,
   "Shall make the world confess
"My sentence of reward is right,
   "And heav'n adore my grace."

PSALM 50. Second Part. C.M.
Obedience is better than sacrifice.

  1 THUS saith the Lord, "the spacious fields
   "And flocks and herds are mine:
"O'er all the cattle of the hills
   "I claim a right divine.
  2 "I ask no sheep for sacrifice,
   "Nor bullocks burnt with fire;
"To hope and love, to pray and praise,
   "Is all that I require.
  3 "Invoke my name when trouble's near,
   "My hand shall set thee free;
"Then shall thy thankful lips declare
   "The honour due to me.
  4 "The man that offers humble praise,
   "Declares my glory best;
"And those that tread my holy ways,
   "Shall my salvation taste.
  5 "Not for the want of bullocks slain
   "Will I the world reprove:
"Altars and rites and forms are vain,
   "Without the fire of love.
  6 "And what have hypocrites to do
   "To bring their sacrifice?
"They call my statutes just and true,
   "But deal in theft and lies.
  7 "Could you expect to 'scape my sight,
   "And sin without control?
