Hymn 1:24 (in Vain The Wealthy Mortals Toil)

The rich sinner dying, Psalm 49. 6 9. Eccl. 8. 8.
Job 3. 14 15.


In vain the wealthy mortals toil,
And heap their shining dust in vain,
Look down and scorn the humble poor,
And boast their lofty hills of gain.

Their golden cordials cannot ease
Their pained hearts or aching heads,
Nor fright nor bribe approaching death
From glittering roofs and downy beds.

The lingering, the unwilling soul
The dismal summons must obey,
And bid a long a sad farewell
To the pale lump of lifeless clay.

Thence they are huddled to the grave,
Where kings and slaves have equal thrones;
Their bones without distinction lie
Amongst the heap of meaner bones.

The rest referred to Psalm 49.

Hymn 1:25 (all Mortal Vanities, Be Gone)
A vision of the Lamb, Rev 5. 6-9.All mortal vanities, be gone,Nor tempt my eyes, nor tire my ears,Behold amidst th' eternal throneA vision of the Lamb appears.(Glory his fleecy robe adorns,Mark'd with the bloody death he bore;Seven are his eyes, and seven his horns,To speak his wisdom and his power.Lo, he receives a sealed bookFrom him that sits upon the throne:Jesus, my Lord, prevails to lookOn dark decrees, and things unknown.)All the assembling saints aroundFall worshipping before the Lamb,And in new songs of gospel-soundAddress their honours to his name,The joy, the shout, the harmonyFlies o'er the everlasting hills,"Worthy art thou

Hymn 1:23 (must All The Charms Of Nature Then)
A hopeful youth falling short of heaven, Mark 10. 21.Must all the charms of nature thenSo hopeless to salvation prove?Can hell demand, can heaven condemnThe man whom Jesus deigns to love?The man who sought the ways of truth,Paid friends and neighbours all their due,(A modest, sober, lovely youth)And thought he wanted nothing now.But mark the change! thus spake the Lord,"Come, part with earth for heaven to-day,"The youth astonish'd at the word,In silent sadness went his way.Poor virtues that he boasted so,This test unable to endure;Let Christ, and grace, and glory goTo make his land and money sure.Ah foolish choice of treasures
