III. PARAPHRASE OF ISAIAH, CHAP. LXIV. O THAT Thou wouldest rend the breadth of sky, That veils Thy presence from the sons of men ! O that, as erst Thou carnest from on high Sudden in strength,Thou so would'st come again! Track'd out by judgments was Thy fiery path, Ocean and mountain withering in Thy wrath ! Then would Thy name—the Just, the Merciful— Strange dubious attributes to human mind, Appal Thy foes ; and, kings, who spurn Thy rule, Then, then would quake to hopeless doom consign'd. See, the stout bows, and totters the secure, While pleasure's bondsman hides his head impure !

Yes ! for His counsels to the end endure; We shall be saved, our rest abideth sure. Lord, Lord ! our sins ... our sins .. . unclean are we, Gross and corrupt; our seeming-virtuous deeds Are but abominate ; all, dead to Thee, Shrivel, like leaves when summer's green recedes ; While, like the autumn blast, our lusts arise, And sweep their prey where the fell serpent lies. None, there is none to plead with God in prayer, Bracing his laggart spirit to the work Of intercession ; conscience-sprung despair, Sin-loving still, doth in each bosom lurk. Guilt calls Thee to avenge ;—Thy risen ire Sears like a brand, we gaze and we expire. But now, OLord, our Father I we are Thine, Design ...
