HYMN 118

S. M.

Moses and Christ; or, Sins against the law and gospel. John 1:17; Heb. 3:3,5,6; 10:28,29.

The law by Moses came,

But peace, and truth, and love,

Were brought by Christ, a nobler name,

Descending from above.

Amidst the house of God

Their diff'rent works were done;

Moses a faithful servant stood,

But Christ a faithful Son.

Then to his new commands

Be strict obedience paid;

O'er all his Father's house he stands

The sovereign and the head.

Ihe man that durst despise

The law that Moses brought,

Behold! how terribly he dies

For his presumptuous fault!

But sorer vengeance falls

On that rebellious race,

Who hate to hear when Jesus calls,

And dare resist his grace.
