Backsliding and Forgiveness; or, Sin punished and Saints saved

Hymnal: Doctor Watts's imitation of the Psalms of David, to which is added a collection of hymns; the whole applied to the state of the Christian Church in general (3rd ed.) #139 (1786) Topics: Backsliding pardoned; Pardon of backsliding; Backsliding pardoned; Pardon of backsliding First Line: Great God, how oft did Israel prove Lyrics: 1 Great God, how oft did Israel prove By turns thine anger, and thy love? There is a glass our hearts may see How fickle and how false they be. 2 How soon the faithless Jews forgot The dreadful wonders God had wrought? Then they provoke him to his face, Nor fear his power, nor trust his grace. 3 The Lord consum'd their years in pain, And made their travels long and vain; A tedious march through unknown ways Wore out their strength, and spent their days. 4 Oft when they saw their brethren slain, They mourn'd, and sought the Lord again; Call'd him the rock of their abode, Their high Redeemer, and their God. 5 Their prayers and vows before him rise As flattering words or solemn lies, While their rebellious tempers prove False to his covenant and his love. 6 Yet could his sovereign grace forgive The men who not deserv'd to live; His anger oft away he turn'd, Or else with gentle flame it burn'd. 7 He saw their flesh was weak and frail, He saw temptations still prevail; The God of Abraham lov'd them still, And led them to his holy hill.
