Hymn 1:06 (great God, I Own Thy Sentence Just)

Triumph over death, Job 19. 25-27.


Great God, I own thy sentence just
And nature must decay;
I yield my body to the dust
To 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 appear
High 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 face
With strong immortal eyes,
And feast upon thy unknown grace
With pleasure and surprise.

Hymn 1:07 (let Every Mortal Ear Attend)
The invitation of the gospel; or, Spiritualfood and clothing, Isa. 55. 1 &c. Let every mortal ear attend,And every heart rejoice,The trumpet of the gospel soundsWith an inviting voice. Ho, all ye hungry starving souls,That feed upon the wind,And vainly strive with earthly toysTo fill an empty mind, Eternal wisdom has prepar'dA soul reviving feast,And bids your longing appetitesThe rich provision taste. Ho, ye that pant for living streams,And pine away and die,Here you may quench your raging thirstWith springs that never dry.Rivers of love and mercy hereIn a rich ocean join;Salvation in abundance flows,Like floods of milk and wine.

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 sighBe 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 tooThat strikes our comforts dead.(The
