HYMN 37. Second Part. C.M.
Perjury. (cont.)

  2 Constant and just to all they speak:
   For God they know can hear.
  3 Still with their lips their hearts agree,
   Nor flatt'ring Avords devise:
They're sure the God of truth can see
   Thro' ev'ry false disguise.
  4 Deceits they hate, they dread all lies,
   Whatever forms they wear;
Preferring death to perjuries,
   They dare not falsely swear.
  5 Lo! from above the Lord descends,
   And brings the judgment down;
He bids his saints, his faithful friends,
   Rise and possess their crown.
  6 While Satan trembles at the sight,
   And devils wish to die;
Where will the faithless hypocrite
   And perjur'd liar fly?

HYMN 38. First Part. L.M.
The fourth command.

  1 RETURN, my soul, enjoy thy rest,
Improve the day thy God has bless'd;
Another six days' work is done,
Another sabbath is begun.
  2 Come, bless the Lord, whose love assigns
So sweet a rest to wearied minds;
Provides a blest foretaste of heav'n.
On this day more than all the sev'n.
  3 O! that our thoughts and thanks may rise,
As grateful incense to the skies;
And draw from Christ that sweet repose,
Which none, but he, that feels it, knows.
  4 This heav'nly calm, within the breast,
Is the dear pledge of glorious rest;

HYMN 38. First Part. L.M.
The fourth command. (cont.)

  4 Which for the church of God remains,
The end of cares, the end of pains.
  5 With joy, great God, thy works we scan,
Creation's scene, redemption's plan;
With praise, we think on mercies past,
With hope, we future pleasures taste.
  6 In holy duties let the day,
In holy comforts pass away;
How sweet, a sabbath thus to spend,
In hope of one, that ne'er shall end!

HYMN 38. Second Part. C.M.
The Lord's day.

  1 COME, dearest Lord, and feed thy sheep,
   On this sweet day of rest;
O! bless this flock, and make this fold
   Enjoy an heav'nly rest.
  2 Welcome, and precious to my soul
   Are these sweet days of love;
But what a sabbath shall I keep,
   When I shall rest above!
  3 I come, I wait, I hear, I pray,
   Thy footsteps, Lord, I trace;
Here, in thine own appointed way,
   I wait to see thy face.
  4 These are the sweet and precious days
   On which my Lord I've seen;
And oft, when feasting on his word,
   In raptures I have been.
  5 O! if my soul, when death appears,
   In this sweet frame be found:
I'll clasp my Saviour in mine arms,br>    And leave this earthly grounds.
  6 I long for that delightful hour,
   When from this clay undrest,
