OLD TESTAMENT.

PUT INTO SHORT RHIME FOR CHILDREN.

Exodus, Chap. xx.

1. THOU shalt have no more Gods but me.
2. Before no idol bow thy knee.
3. Take the me of God in vain.
4. Nor dare the sabbath-day profane.
5. Give both thy parents honour due.
6. Take heed that thou no murder do.
7. Abstain from words and deeds unclean.

8. Nor steal, though thou art poor and mean.
9. Nor make a wilful lie, nor love it.
10. What is thy neighbour's dare not covet.

OUR SAVIOUR'S GOLDEN RULE.
Matthew vii. 12.

DUTY TO GOD AND OUR NEIGHBOUR
Love God with all your soul and strength,
With all your heart and mind:
And love your neighbour as yourself,
Be faithful, just and kind.

Deal with another, as you 'd have
Another deal with you;

What you 're unwilling to receive,
Be sure you never do.

Be you to others kind and true,
As you'd have others be to you ;
And neither do nor say to men
Whate'er you would not take again.

COMMON METRE.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, OUT OF THE HOSANNA to the Prince of Grace;
Sion, behold thy King!
Proclaim the Son of David's race,
And teach the babes to sing.
Hosanna to th' eternal Word,

Who from the Father came;
Ascribe salvation to the Lord,
With blessings on his name.

THE SUM OF THE COMMANDMENTS, OUT
OF THE NEW TESTAMENT.
Matthew xxii. 37.

WITH all thy soul love God above,
And as thyself thy neighbour love.

[Out of my Book of Hymns I have here added the Hosanna, and Glory to the Father, &c. to be sung at the end of any of these Songs, according to the direction of parents or governors.]

THE HOSANNA:

OR

SALVATION ASCRIBED TO CHRIST.

LONG METRE.

HOSANNA to king David's Son,

Who reigns on a superiour throne:
We bless the prince of heavenly birth,
Who brings salvation down on Earth.

Let every nation, every age,
In this delightful work engage;
Old men and babes in Sion sing
The growing glories of her king.

SHORT METRE.

HOSANNA to the Son

Of David and of God,

Who brought the news of pardon down,
And bought it with his blood.

To Christ, th' anointed King,

Be endless blessings given;
Let the whole Earth his glory sing,
Who made our peace with Heaven.

GLORY TO THE FATHER AND THE SON, Ic.

LONG METRE.

To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One;
Be honour, praise and glory given,
By all on Earth, and all in Heaven.

COMMON METRE.

Now let the Father and the Son,
And Spirit, be ador'd,

Where there are works to make him known.
Or saints to love the Lord.
