THOUGHTS

ON

The Sufferings of Christ.

BY THE

AUTHOR OF “THE REFUGE,” AND “THE

GUIDE TO DOMESTIC HAPPINESS.”

* Redemption! oh thou beauteous mystic plan!
Thou salutary source of life to man!
What tongue can speak thy comprehensive grace!
What thoughts thy depths unfathomable trace!
When lost in sin our ruin'd nature lay,
When awful justice claim'd her righteous pay!
See the mild Saviour bend his pitying eye,
And stops the lightning just prepared to fly!'

First American, from the second enlarged London edition.
