Soon our Saviour will return

Triumphant in the Skies : Yet a Season, and you know

Happy Entrance will be giv'n, All our Sorrows left below,

And Earth exchang'd for Heav'n.

A Dialogue between Men and Women.

we are journeying to our God,

Bid, by the Spirit Come,
Wom. And in the Way his Children trod,

We seek our Father's Home. We walk a narrow Path and rough,

And we are tir'd and weak; Yet foon fall we bave Reft enough,

In these bleft Courts we feek.
Farewel, false, treacherous World, farewel,

To better Worlds we go ;
We travel with our God to dwell,

To cease from Toil below.
Our Saviour calls us ; there is room

and we believe ;
We come, Lord Jesus, lo! we come,
Thy promis'd Kingdom give.

TOME my Brethren, Israel's Race,

And hear me bless my King, Hear me my beloved Praise,

My Jesus do I Sing ; Neither hear my Song alone,

But help! O help me to proclaim, Jesus our Creator's Son,

Jesus ! that lovely Name. Others fing their Time away,

Who Jesus never knew; Ought not we to pass our Day

In Joy and Singing too? Others, have they cause to bless ?

The Children of the King have more ; They have Chrift, their Righteousness !

Their Glory, Peace and Pow'r.
Bow thy Throne, thou Son of God !

And with a living Coal
From the Altar, ftain'd with Blood,

Inspire each drowsy Soul.
Slaughter'd Lamb, who, who can fhew,

Or fully who can sing thy Praise ?
Lord, we fail in Hymns below,

Téach ! teach us heav'nly Lays.
