There's none hath power divine;
Nor are their works like thine.

Teach me thine heavenly ways,
In God my Father's praise.

Zion, city of our God;
Chose thee for his own abode.

Zion, city of our God ;
Chose thee for his own abode.

Resurrection from the Grave.
2 In those dark, silent realms of night
Shall peace and hope no more arise ?
When Christ, our Lord, from darkness sprang,
And heaven with praise and wonder rang. mll 4 Faith sees the bright, eternal doors
Unfold to make his children way;
And shine in everlasting day.
From the cold tomb the slumberers spring !
And hail their Saviour, and their King.
88 SECOND PART. L. M. Windham.
Sinners invited to immediate Repentance.
Mercy is found-and peace is given;
Shall blot out every hope of heaven.
How sweet the gospel's charming sound! mf Come, sinners, haste-oh, haste away,
While yet a pardoning God is found. mp 3 Soon, borne on time's most rapid wing,
Shall death command you to the grave;
And none be found to hear, or save.
No Sabbath's heavenly light shall rise ;
No Saviour call you to the skies.
How sweet the gospel's charming sound! mf Come, sinners, haste-oh,
haste away, While yet a pardoning God is found.
88 THIRD PART. s. M. Boxford. Aff YE sinners, fear the Lord,
While yet 'tis called to-day;
Command your souls away.
The summer soon be o'er;
And soon your injured, angry God, Len Will hear your prayers no more.
3 Then while 'tis called to-day,
Oh hear the gospel's sound; mf Come, sinner, haste-oh haste away,
While pardon may be found.
