or, deliverance begun and completed.
Thou hast revers'd our heavy doom ; So God forgave when Israel sinn'd,
And brought his wandering captives home. % Thou hast begun to set us free,
And made thy fiercest wrath abate;
And thy salvation be complete. 3 Revive our dying graces, Lord,
And let thy saints in thee rejoice;

Shall there begin their lives anew :
The bill where living waters spring.

Thy children shall be ever blest; “ Thou art my chosen King; thy throne
“ Shall stand eternal, like my own.
“ So much my image or my love ;
• Then what can earth to thee eompare? 5 " David, my servant, whom I chose,
“ To guard my flock, to crush my foes, "And rais'd him to the Jewish throne,
“ Was but a shadow of my Son.”

On thy supporting hand;
Move round at thy command.
And rule the boisterous deep ;
The rolling billows sleep 5 Heaven, earth, and air, and sea are thine,
And the dark world of hell i
