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

  6 I shall be cloth'd in robes divine
   And made forever blest.

HYMN 38. Third Part. L.M.
The eternal Sabbath.

  1 THINE earthly sabbaths, Lord, we love;
But there's a nobler rest above:
To that our longing souls aspire,
With cheerful hope and warm desire.
  2 No more fatigue, no more distress,
Nor sin, nor hell shall reach the place;
Nor groans shall mingle with the songs,
Which warble from immortal tongues.
  3 No rude alarms of raging foes,
No cares to break the long repose;
No midnight shade, no clouded sun;
But sacred, high, eternal noon.
  4 O long-expected day! begin
Dawn On these realms of woe and sin:
Fain would we leave this weary road,
And sleep in death, to rest with God.

HYMN 39. First Part. L.M.
The fifth command.

  1 GREAT source of order, Maker wise!
Whose throne is high above the skies;
We praise thy name; thy laws ordain,
That order shall on earth obtain.
  2 Let each inferior rank revere
All such as their superiors are;
And let superiors also do
What's right by each inferior too.
  3 To thee may each united house,
At morn and night present its vows;
O may each family proclaim
Th honours of thy glorious name!

HYMN 39. Second Part. C.M.
Honour to magistrates.

  1 ETERNAL sov'reign of the sky,
   And Lord of all below;
We mortals to thy majesty
   Our first obedience owe.
  2 Our souls adore thy throne supreme;
   And bless thy providence,
For magistrates of various name,
   Our glory and defence.
  3 Where laws and liberty combine
   To make the nation bless'd;
There magistrates with lustre shine;
   And states are govern'd best.
  4 Nations on firm foundations stand,
   While virtue finds reward;
And sinners perish from the land,
   By justice and the sword.
  5 To magistrates be honour paid,
   To laws obedience shown;
But consciences and souls were made
   To be the Lord's alone.

HYMN 39. Third Part. C.M.
The anxiety of pious parents for their children.

  1 THO' parents may in covenant be,
   And have their heav'n in view;
They are unhappy, till they see
   Their children happy too.
  2 Their hearts with inward anguish bleed,
   When all attempts prove vain,
To save their race from paths, that lead
   To everlasting pain.
  3 They warn, indulge, correct, beseech,
   While tears in torrents flow;
