THE GREAT JUBILEE, Of which the Jubilee under the Law was a Figure. JAIL, glorious DAY ! from ancient times foretold ! IT Proclim'd by types and prophecies of old ! Tri gay of Heav'n's eternal Jubilee, Ordain d of God to set poor capives free! Great day, for which all other days were made! Whici. God weil pleas'ni foresaw, when he survey'd Mari b; rebellion, rund, lost, undune, Redeeii'a, rest r'd by Jesus Chirst, his Son.' Thudiy s Goa, piefigur'd by the law, And which the phers at a distance saw: The grandiui ofiny sceres I would proclaim, If Govetluch my lips with heav'niy fame: To me, C Gin, the learned's tongue impart ; Direct my fiuicy, and inspire my heart. Fix'd by ihe Great Eternal's firm decree, . Tliy dare is wrapt in awful mystery : So far remote that day, conceal'd from view Its hidden periods, ard its won'lers too, That men iimpiously traduce, blasphenie, And count thi Important Bay a tictious dranı: Assist me, Faiti, Hope, Chvrity, divine, I prize your aid, let all your virtue shine, Teach nie that hidden period te explore; When sin, and pain, and death shall be no more. When Christ shall over all his foes prevail, And spoil the powers of darkness, death and hell. Then shali Creation own nis sovereign sway, And ev'ry creature willingly obey. Each knee shall bow, and ev'ry tongue shall swear, While heav'n and earth bis right to reign declare. To all mankind it shall be testified, In that due time the Saviour for them died, All things in him shall then reheaded be, All own him Lord, and now the suppliant knee, All reconcil'd to God, his love shail know, Whether in heav'n above, or earth below. The YEAR OF JUBILEE shall then become, And all the Saviour purchas'd shall come home,
The Mediator shall no more complain,
The Triumphs of Hell shall make way, and be. come the foundation for the Triumphs of Grace.
: Dr. Hunter . And there shall be no more curse.
To day begin thy reign.
Enlist me, now inclin'd;
Eternal Love design'd.
Heal, heal me thus defil'da
LORD! am I not thy child ?
Begin my heaven below; ,
Moses-thy type--declar'd :
Content-I'll wait resign'd.
Refleot it through my mind!
So, as a river many a shore,
Enriches in its course ;
New tribute to its source.
I'll render back as thine-
Still Hope should not repine. :
Repair, with them I'd meet :
And share their heav'nly treat.
Though hallow'd bread I prizes
Sublimer sense must rise,
And handle, and admire ;
TO I MMA NU E L..
Endure me thus to call ;
Victorious over all,
Hear, heaven! --Proclaim your King;
MESSIAH! -Thee I sing.
