Hymn 1:05 (naked As From The Earth We Came)

Submission to afflictive providences, Job 1. 21.


Naked as from the earth we came,
And crept to life at first,
We to the earth return again,
And mingle with our dust.

The dear delights we here enjoy,
And fondly call our own,
Are but short favours borrow'd now,
To be repaid anon.

'Tis God that lifts our comforts high,
Or sinks them in the grave;
He gives, and (blessed be his name!)
He takes but what he gave.

Peace, all our angry passions, then,
Let each rebellious sigh
Be silent at his sov'reign will,
And every murmur die.

If smiling mercy crown our lives,
Its praises shall be spread;
And we'll adore the justice too
That strikes our comforts dead.

Hymn 1:06 (great God, I Own Thy Sentence Just)
Triumph over death, Job 19. 25-27. Great God, I own thy sentence justAnd nature must decay;I yield my body to the dustTo dwell with fellow-clay. Yet faith may triumph o'er the grave,And trample on the tombs:My Jesus, my Redeemer lives,My God, my Saviour comes. The mighty Conqueror shall appearHigh on a royal seat,And Death, the last of all his foes,Lie vanquish'd at his feet.Tho' greedy worms devour my skin,And gnaw my wasting flesh,When God shall build my bones again,He clothes them all afresh.Then shall I see thy lovely faceWith strong immortal eyes,And feast upon thy unknown graceWith pleasure and surprise.(The end)Isaac

Hymn 1:04 (questions And Doubts Be Heard No More)
The inward witness to Christianity, 1 John 5. 10.Questions and doubts be heard no more;Let Christ and joy be all our theme;His Spirit seals his gospel sure,To every soul that trusts in him.Jesus, thy witness speaks within:The mercy which thy words revealRefines the heart from sense and sin,And stamps its own celestial seal.'Tis God's inimitable handThat moulds and forms the heart anew;Blasphemers can no more withstand,But bow and own thy doctrine true.The guilty wretch that trusts thy blood,Finds peace and pardon at thy cross;The sinful soul averse to God,Believes and loves his Maker's laws.Learning and wit may cease their strife,When miracles
