Safely through another week
Salvation! what a glorious plan
Sav'd by blood, I live to tell
Saviour, shine and cheer my soul
Saviour, visit thy plantation -
See Aaron, God's anointed priest
See! another year is gone
See, how rude winter's icy hand
See! the corn again in ear
See the gloomy gath'ring cloud-
See, the world for youth prepares
Shall men pretend to pleasure
Sight, hearing, feeling, taste, and
smell
Simon, beware! the Saviour said
Sin, when view'd by Scripture-light
Sinner, art thou still secure
Sinners, hear the Saviour's call
Sin enslav'd me many years
Sin has undone our wretched race
Some author (no great matter who)
Sometimes a light surprises
Son of God, thy people's shield -
Sov'reign grace has pow'r alone
Stop, poor sinner! stop and think
Strange and mysterious is my life
Supported by the word

The evils that beset our path
The kine unguided went ⚫

Ten thousand talents once I ow'd
That was a wonder-working word.
That man no guard or weapon needs 360
The church a garden is

The God who once to Israel spoke - 479
The grass, and flow'rs which clothe
the field.

INTRODUCTION.

THOUGH the actions of mankind appear greatly diversified from the influence of particular circumstances, human nature has been always the same. The history of all ages and countries uniformly confirms the scriptural doctrine, that man is a depraved and fallen creature, and that some selfish temper, ambition, avarice, pride, revenge, and the like, are, in effect, the main springs and motives of his conduct, unless so far, and in such instances, as they are corrected and subdued by Divine Grace.

Therefore, when St. Paul speaks of the most dreadful degree of impiety that can be imagined, enmity against God, he does not consider it as the fault of the particular time in which he lived, or impute it singly either to the idolatrous Heathens or the obstinate Jews, but he affirms universally, that the carnal mind (ro pрovnμa τns capкos), the wisdom, the most spiritual and discerning faculty of man, is enmity against God. Men differ considerably in capacity, rank, education, and attainments; they jar in sentiments and interests; they mutually revile, hate, and destroy one another; but in this point they all agree. Whether Greeks or Barbarians, wise or ignorant, bond or free, the bent and disposition of their minds, while unrenewed by grace, is black and implacable enmity against the blessed God.

To those who acknowledge the authority of Scripture, St. Paul's express assertion should be sufficient proof of this point, if we could produce no other; but, besides
