Hereby stern Justice is appeas'd,
Sinners look up and be releas'd.

3 Mercy, Peace, Truth, and Righteousness,
Beam from the Reconciler's Face:
Here Look, till Love dissolve our Heart,
And bid your slavish Fears depart.

4 O quit the World's delusive Charms,
And quickly fly to Jesus' Arms;
Wrestle until your God is known,
Till you can call the Lord your own.
