DR. WATTS'S SERMONS.

C. M. London 180. Follett 181. ?

A rational Defence of the Gospel. 122
1
SHALL atheists dare insult the cross

Of our incarnate God?
Shall infidels revile his truth,

And trample on his blood ?
2 What if he choose mysterious ways

To cleanse us from our faults !
May not the works of sovereign grace
5. Transcend our feeble thoughts?
3 What if his gospel bid us strive

With flesh, and self, and sin !
The prize is most divinely bright

That we are call'd to win.
4 What if the men, despis'd on earth,

Still of his grace partake!
This but confirms his truth the more,

?
For so the prophets spake.
that
his sacred truth,

wie
Indulge their souls in sin ?
None should reproach the Saviour's name,

His laws are pure and clean.
6 Then let our faith be firm and strong,

Our lips profess his word;
Nor ever shun those holy men
Who fear and love the Lord.

In Jesus approv'd,

Eternally lov'd,
Upheld by thy power we cannot be mov'd.

On the bosom divine,
And experience the comforts peculiar to thine';

While, born from above,

And upheld by thy love this li With singing and triumph to Zion ,we move. ? 3 Our seeking thy face

Was all of thy grace,
Thy mercy demands and shall have all the praise:

No sinner can be

Beforehand-with thee,
Thy grace is preventing, almighty, and free,

Our Saviour and friend "i

His love shall-extend; 1: 6.5, 7011111.51! $ It knew no beginning, and never shall end:

Whom once he receives

His Spirit ne'er leaves, Nor ever repents of the grace that he' gives. 5

This proof we would give

That thee we receive;
Thou art precious alone to the souls that believe;!-

Be precious to us!

All besides is as dross, cafoross. Compar’d with thy love and the blood of thy 64

More holiness grant! For more of thy mind and thy image ye pant: ; a

Thine image impress +6+ On thy favourite races O fashion and polish thy vessels of grace!

More fully would be; [to thee: Lord, stretch out thine hand, and conform us

HO shall condemn to endless flames

The chosen people of cur God!
Since in the book of lite their names

Are fairly writ in Jesus' blaad... 10) 2 He, for the sins of all the elect, hots!!

Hath a complete atonement made; o
And justice never can expect

That the same debt should twice be paid,
3 Not tribulation, nakedness,
The famine, peril

, or the sword; Not persecution, or distress,

Can separate from Christ the Lord.
4 Nor life, nor death, nor depth, nor height,

Nor powers below, nor powers above,
· Nor present things, nor things to come,
Can change his purposes of love."
