Soon shall this earthly frame, dissolv'd. [The Resurrection.] This paraphrase of 2 Cor. v. 1-11 first appeared in the Draft of the Scottish Translations and Paraphrases, in 1745, and was repeated in the Draft of 1751. In the authorized issue of the Translations and Paraphrases, of 1781, No. 51, several alterations were introduced into the text by W. Cameron. Of this paraphrase, sts. v.-vii., are from I. Watts's "There is a house not made with hands" (Hymns & Sacred Songs, 1709, iii.—v.), somewhat altered. Possibly some of the remaining stanzas may have been suggested by other hymns by Watts on kindred subjects, as, for example, Book i. No. 100; and Book ii., No. 61, in the Hymns & Sacred Songs, 1709; but the similarity between these hymns and this paraphrase is very slight.
