TRIAL AND TEMPTATION
432
2  With its witching pleasures
Would this vain world charm, Or its sordid treasures
Spread to work me harm, Bring to my remembrance
Sad Gethsemane, Or, in darker semblance,
Cross-crowned Calvary.
3  If with sore affliction
Thou in love chastise, Pour Thy benediction On the sacrifice;
Then, upon Thine altar
Freely offered up, Though the flesh may falter,
Faith shall drink the cup.
4 When in dust and ashes
To the grave I sink, Whila heaven's glory flashes
O'er the shelving brink, On Thy truth relying
Through that mortal strife, Lord, receive me, dying,
To eternal life.
James Montgomery, 1S34
