True Happiness

Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #CVIII (1791) Topics: Christian Consolation First Line: How happy is the Christian's State Lyrics: 1 How happy is the Christian's State! His Sins are all forgiven; A cheering Ray confirms the Grace, And lifts his Hopes to Heav'n. 2 Tho' in the rugged Path of Life, He heaves the pensive Sigh; Yet trusting in his God he finds Deliv'ring Grace is nigh. 3 If, to prevent his wand'ring Steps, He feels the chast'ning Rod; The gentle Stroke shall bring him back To his forgiving God. 4 And when the welcome Message comes To call his Soul away; His Soul, in Raptures shall ascend To everlasting Day.

Blest is the Man who shuns the Place

Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #XXXI (1791) Topics: Christian Consolation Lyrics: 1. Blest is the Man who shuns the Place Where Sinners love to meet; Who fears to tread their wicked Ways, And hates the Scoffer's Seat: 2. But in the Statutes of the Lord Has plac'd his chief Delight; By Day he reads or hears the Word, And meditates by Night. 3. (He like a Plant of gen'rous kind, By living Waters set, Safe from the Storms and blasting Wind, Enjoys a peaceful State.] 4. Great as the Leaf, and ever fair Shall his Profession shine, While Fruits of holiness appear Like Clusters on the Vine. 5. Not so the Impious and Unjust; What vain Designs they form1 Their Hopes are blow'n away like Dust, Or Chaff before the Storm. 6 Sinners in Judgment shall not stand Amongst the Sons of Grace, When Christ the Judge at his right Hand, Appoints his Saints a Place. 7. His Eye beholds the Path they tread; His Heart aproves it well: But crooked Ways of Sinners lead Down to the Gates of Hell. Scripture: Psalm 1 Languages: English

Death may dissolve my Body now

Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #LXII (1791) Topics: Christian Consolation Lyrics: [1 Death may dissolve my Body now, And bear my Spirit home; Why do my Minutes move so slow, Nor my Salvation come? 2 With Heav'nly Weapons I have fought The Battles of the Lord; Finish'd my Course, and kept the Faith, And wait the sure Reward.] 3 God has laid up in Heav'n for me A Crown which cannot fade; The Righteous Judge at that great Day Shall place it on my Head. 4 Nor hath the King of Grace decreed This Prize for me alone; But all that love, and long to see Th' Appearance of his Son. 5 Jesus the Lord, shall guard me safe From ev'ry ill Design; And to his heav'nly Kingdom take This feeble Soul of mine. 6 God is my everlasting Aid, And Hell shall rage in vain; To him be highest Glory paid And endless praise. AMEN. Scripture: 2 Timothy 4:6-7 Languages: English

The Promis'd Land

Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #LXXIX (1791) Topics: Christian Consolation First Line: Far from these narrow Scenes of Night Lyrics: 1 Far from these narrow Scenes of Night, Unbounded Glories rise, And Realms of infinite delight, Unknown to Mortal Eyes. 2 There Pain and Sickness never come, And Grief no more complains; Health Triumphs in Immortal Bloom, And endless Pleasure reigns. 3 No Cloud those blissful Regions know, For ever bright and fair! For Sin, the source of mortal Woe, Can never enter there. 4 There no alternate Night is known, Nor Sun's faint sickly Ray; But Glory from the sacred Throne Spreads everlasting Day. 5 O may the heav'nly Prospect fire Our Hearts with ardent Love, Till Wings of Faith, and strong Desire Bear ev'ry Thought above. 6 Prepare us, Lord, by Grace Divine For thy bright Courts on High; Then bid our Spirits rise and join The Chorus of the Sky.

Praying for Relations

Hymnal: The Christians Duty, exhibited, in a series of Hymns #CXLVI (1791) Topics: Christian Consolation First Line: Kind souls, who for the miseries moan Lyrics: 1 Kind Souls, who for the Mis'ries moan Of those who seldom mind their own; But treat your Zeal with cold Disdain, Resolv'd to make your Labours vain. 2 You whose sincere Affection tends, To help your dear, ungrateful Friends, Who think you Foes, or Mad, or Fools, Because you fain would save their Souls. 3 Though deaf to ev'ry Warning giv,n, They scorn to walk with you to Heav'n; But ofthen think, and sometimes say, They'll never go if that's the Way. 4 Though they the Spirit of God resist, Or ridicule your Faith in Christ; Tho' they blaspheme, oppose, contemn; And hate you for your Love to them. 5 One secret Way is left you still, To do them Good against their Will: Here they can no Obstruction give; You may do this without their Leave. 6 Fly to the Throne of Grace by Pray'r, And pour out all your Wishes there: Effectual fervent Pray'r prevails, When ev'ry other Method fails.
