Hymn 1:52 ('twas The Commission Of Our Lord)

Baptism, Matt. 28. 19. Acts 2. 38.

'Twas the commission of our Lord,
"Go, teach the nations, and baptize;"
The nations have receiv'd the word
Since he ascended to the skies.

He sits upon th' eternal hills,
With grace and pardon in his hands,
And sends his covenant with the seals,
To bless the distant British lands.

"Repent, and be baptiz'd, (he saith)
For the remission of your sins;"
And thus our sense assists our faith,
And shews us what his gospel means.

Our souls he washes in his blood,
As water makes the body clean;
And the good Spirit from our God
Descends like purifying rain.

Thus we engage ourselves to thee,
And seal our covenant with the Lord:
O may the great eternal Three
In heaven our solemn vows record!

The Reproof
Mamma heard me with scorn and pride A wretched beggar boy deride. "Do you not know," said I, "how mean It is to be thus begging seen? If for a week I were not fed, I'm sure I would not beg my bread." And then away she saw me stalk With a most self-important walk. But meeting her upon the stairs, All these my consequential airs Were chang'd to an entreating look. "Give me," said I, "the Pocket Book, Mamma, you promis'd I should have." The Pocket Book

Hymn 1:51 (to God The Only Wise)
Persevering grace, Jude 24 25.To God the only wise,Our Saviour and our King,Let all the saints below the skiesTheir humble praises bring.'Tis his almighty love,His counsel, and his care,Preserves us safe from sin and death,And every hurtful snare.He will present our soulsUnblemish'd and complete,Before the glory of his face,With joys divinely great.Then all the chosen seedShall meet around the throne,Shall bless the conduct of his grace,And make his wonders known.To our Redeemer GodWisdom and power belongs,Immortal crowns of majesty,And everlasting songs.(The end)Isaac Watts's poem: Hymn 1:51 (To God The Only Wise)
