TEMPERANCE REFORM.
33
3 I'll cast myself before his feet; I see him on his mercy-seat: ('Tis sprinkled with atoning blood:) There sinners find access to God. Ye burdened souls approach with me, And make the Saviours name your plea; Jesus will pardon all who come, And strike our fierce accuser dumb."
PART IV.
OBJECT AND END OF THE TEMPER­ANCE REFORMATION.
38                         L. M.
1          HAIL temp'rance, fair celestial ray! Bright herald of a new-born day ! Long did we need thy cheering light To chase away our darksome night.
2  Deep and appalling was the gloorn, 'Twas like the darkness of the tomb, When first our much delighted eyes Beheld thy beauteous beams arise.
3  'Twas God in mercy bade thee shine ; We hail thee as a boon divine.
And now in grateful strains would raise Our voices in his matchless praise.
4  Eternal Lord! we own thy grace, In all that aids our guilty race. Now send thy Spirit from above And fill our hearts with joy and love.
