May drink of my Spirit, Excepted is none,

S.M. Isaiah lxvi. 19,20.
1 ALMIGHTY God of love,
Set up the attracting sign,
And summon whom thou dost approve
For messengers divine;

In isles and continents to spread
The dead-reviving news.

Through every nation send,
The true Messiah to proclai ...read
ALMIGHTY Maker of my frame,
L.M. Psalm xxxix.
1 ALMIGHTY Maker of my frame,
Teach me the measure of my days,
Teach me to know how frail I am,
And spend the remnant to thy praise.

How vain are all his hopes and fears!

Vain a ...read
AND am I born to die?

Where all things are forgot?
2 Soon as from earth I go,
What will become of me?
Eternal happiness or woe
Must then my portion be;
Waked by th ...read
AND am I only born to die?

And must I suddenly comply
With nature's stern decree?
What after death for me remains?
Celestial joys, or hellish pains,

While God prolongs the kind reprieve
And props the house of clay?
My sole concern, my single care,
To watch, and tremble, ...read

AND can it be, that I should gain
1 AND can it be, that I should gain
An interest in the Saviour's blood'?
Died he for me, who caused his pain?
For me, who him to death pursued?

That thou, my God, shouldst die for me?

Who can explore his strange design?
In vain the first-born seraph tries
To sou ...read

In Jesu's work below;

ANGELS your march oppose,
S.M. SECOND PART

Exert their baneful power,
O'er the poor fallen sons o ...read

A soul that walks with Christ in light,

The end of Jesu's coming show;
To sentence their usurping prince,
