HYMN 7. Fourth Part. P.M.
A living faith. (cont.)

  4    When, Satan's blind slave,
   I sported with death:
And can he have taught me to trust in his name,
And thus far have brought me, to put me to shame?
  5    Why should I complain
   Of want or distress,
   Temptation or pain?
   He told me no less:
The heirs of salvation, I know from his word,
Thro' much tribulation, must follow the Lord.
  6    How bitter that cup
   No heart can conceive,
   Which he drank quite up,
   That sinners might live!
His way was much rougher, and darker than mine;
Did Jesus thus suffer, and shall I repine?
  7    Since all, that I meet,
   Shall work for my good;
   The bitter is sweet,
   The med'cine is food:
Tho' painful at present, 'twill cease before long,
And then, O how pleasant the conqueror's song!

HYMN 8. First Part. L.M.
The holy Trinity.

  1 THERE is one God, and only one;
No rivals can his essence share:
He is Jehovah, he alone,
And with the Lord none can compare.
  2 His works, thro' all this wondrous frame,
Express the Maker's vast designs:

HYMN 8. First Part. L.M.
The holy Trinity. (cont.)

  2 They bear the impress of his name;
In ev'ry part his wisdom shines.
  3 If in his works such wonders rise,
How much more wonderful is he!
Whose nature's fill'd with mysteries;
His being One, his person Three.
  4 What finite pow'r with ceaseless toil,
Can comprehend th' eternal Mind?
Or, who th' almighty Three and One,
By searching to perfection find?
  5 Angels and men in vain may raise
Harmonious, their adoring songs;
The lab'ring thoughts sink down opprest,
And praises die upon their tongues.
  6 Yet would I lift my trembling voice,
Th' eternal Three in One to sing;
And mingling faith, while I rejoice,
My humble, grateful tribute bring.
  7 All glory to th' eternal Three,
The sacred undivided One:
To Father, Son, and Spirit be
Co-equal praise, and honours done.

HYMN 8. Second Part. L.M.
The triune God, the God of our salvation.

  1 IONG ere the sun began his days,
Or moon shot forth her silver rays,
Salvation's scheme was fixt, 'twas done
In cov'nant by the Three in One.
  2 The Father spake, the Son replied.
The Spirit with them both complied:
Grace mov'd the cause for saving man,
And wisdom drew the noble plan.
  3 The Father chose his only Son
To die for sins, that man had done;
