AN ADDRESS 20 TIIE LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF WINCANTON, For the Encouragement of the Sunday-School, by M. J.
Ye friends of mercy, let your hearts expand ;
*Lo! in the gospel we our pattern find,
place the blessed lamp in ev'ry hand,
The means bestow to teach a rising race
Oh! what a harvest to our view is this!
CHRIST, THE BELIEVER'S ALL.
All religion to me was a pain;
I shall count nothing else to be gain.
And riches and pow'r among men,
And enjoy him thro' time without end.
All other pursuits do resign ;
If in glory with Jesus I shine.
Vain titles or honours to gain !
With Jesus for ever to reigo.
My religion their scorn let them make,
And I'd glory to die for his sake.
Their joys are all gone with the past ;
And in death all my sorrows are lost.
They're imprison'd for ever in night,
To abodes of perfection and light;
Many ages of pleasure I'll spend,
And my Saviour to judgmept descend.
I'll ascend to the mansions above,
Printed by C. AULT, Greville Stree, Loudon
