CXL. Laodicea. Chap. iii. 1.4.-20. HE

EAR what the Lord, the great Amen,

The true and faithful witness fays !
He form'd the vast creation's plan,

And searches all our hearts and ways. 2 To fome he speaks as once of old,

" I know thee, thy profeffion's vain ;
Since thou art neither hot nor cold,

1'll spit thee from me with disdain. 3 Thou boasted I am wife and rich,

Increas'd in goods, and nothing need;'
And doft not know thou art a wretch,

Naked, and poor, and blind, and dead. 4 Yet while I thus rebuke, I love,

My meffage is in mercy fent;
That'tbou may'ft my compaffion prove,

I can forgive if thou repent.
5 Would'it thou be truly rich and wise !

Come, buy my gold in fire well try'd,
My ointment to anoint thine eyes,

My sobe thy nakedness to bide.
6 See at thy door I stand and knock!

Poor finner, fhall I wait in vain !
Quickly thy stubborn heart unlock,
That I may enter with my

train. 7 Thou canst not entertain'a king,

Unworthy thou of such a guest !
But I my owo provisions bring,
To make thy foal a heav'nly feast."

: WHEN the belov'd disciple took

The angel's little open book, Which by the Lord's command he eat,

It tasted bitter after (weer.
2 Thus when the gospel is embrac'd,

At first 'uis sweeter to the taste
Than honey, or the honey-comb,

But there's a bitterness to come.,
3. What sweetness does the promise yield,

When by the Spirit's power sealid?
The longing foul is fill'd with good,

Nor feels a wish for other food. 4 By these inviting tastes allur'd,

We pass to what must be endur'd; lor foon we find it is decreed,

That bitter must to sweet fucceed. 5

When sin revives and thews its pow's,
When Satan threatens to devour,
When God aficts, and men revile,

We draw our fteps with pain and toil, 6 When thus deferted, tempeft-toft,

The sense of former sweetness lost,
We tremble left we were deceiv'd

In thinking that we once believ'd. 7 The Lord first makes the sweetness known,

To win and fix us for his own;
And tho'we now some bicter meet,
We hope for everlafting swect.
