That now do stand then in this land,
As she did then appear; They are going out by Hell's command
To meet their murderer there.
I'll surely purge this floor,
And keep the prisoners here;
Going out to meet their doom;
Or Satan in their room
If they will stand like she.
And judge the words from ME,
As mon so inock'd MY NAME;
Did we our God blaspheme?
That way for to appear“ We judge our God is in the sound,
“T'is time to tremblc hcre. “ Now we see plain we are but men,
« Our Bibles did not know, « This way
the Lord would ever come, “ We ne'er discern'd it so: “ So it is said, we are misled,
“ We ne'cr did undertsand " That perfect in the Woman's Form
“ He'd come again to Man« To free the Law, we all do know
We judg'd it at that time; « When to the Cross He sure did go
What folly filled our minds ? “ To judge it then, as sinple men,
“ We cannot make it clear: . Under the Law, we all do know,
« The Jews do now appear-, “ Under the fall we do sce all
“ In Adam's guilt to stand." • Then how can we our Bibles clear
“ And prove that now we stand: “ Can we contrive to say alive
" In Christ all surely be? “ As then in Adain all did dic!!!
“ It cannot be provid by we: 4 Then we may fear the Lord is herc
“ Provok'd in every sound: " And if 'tis Ilim we mock so hero
In guilt we shall be found. “ We know at last the die is cast,
« The worst crror is come ** Thcsin against the IloLY GHOST
" Will not be forgiven by Himt,
( 59 )
I know, will many dom
The threatenings I have made!!!
I have like my Shepherds laid,
To mock me so with scorn!!!
That humbly will return,
At our Emanuel's feet,
The Midnight Hour to meet."
But let the night pass through ;
To bring before thy view.
FROM MISS TOWNLEY TO MR. SHARP.
Sunday, June 24th, 1804 Joanna waked with great joy and happiness in her, and began to plan a simple scheme in her own head, the way she thought she should hear the voice of the Lord call her aloud, as she often heard her name called aloud, and was promised she should again ; and she thought it might be in the simple plan she had placed in her own mind; but finding herself disappointed, she laughed at her own folly, and told us her plan and her thoughts. The plan we saw, but her thoughts were unknown to us, before she told them, and then laughed at her simple thoughts that she had been placing in her own mind, and how she was disappointed, but did not feel
any sorrow at her disappointment; but all was joy and happiness within ; and she was admiring the beauty of the Wisdom of the Lord, in what wolldrous manner he was working; and that she would not go one step from his directions, for the whole world. She was remarking the impudence and ig
norance there was in men, from an impudent ignorant clergyman, that had the assurance to write to Miss Townley, that she spent her money in the work of the Lord, for so it is, whatever the wretch may judge it. He said he should not be surprized, if the Chancellor took care of her fortune. But none of these threatenings are ever sent to ladies of fashion, who ruin their fortunes in the works of the devil, by gambling .at cards, operas, balls, assemblies, masquerades, and every catalogue of vice, that the devil can invent. These are very well to be supported, and every luxury and extravagance are very well to be upholded, till their shattered fortunes are gone ; and the poor, honest, industrious tradesmen, are often ruined by their extravagancies ; for they not only run through their own fortunes, but they run through the fortunes of others, and then think it very well to say they are broke, therefore the people must forgive them, and they remain as gentlement the same, and with im. pudence and confidence demand it, because of their Rank and Title. After making 'these remarks to us in part of the words, rivers of joy run through her mind ; joy that she cannot express, and she felt her heart too full to keep silence; she came out of her bed and walked up and down the room as fast as possible, and said she felt herfelf so full she should burst if Miss T. did not put down the communication she was copying and send it to her brother to copy off'; and call Underwood to sit to writing; for she says, the world is at an end ; the days of Sodom and Gomorrah are come, in a day they little think of; and in a day unawares the Lord will come with a SHOUT FROM HEAVEN, as the voice of many waters; for his Ambassador is gone forth; HIS HORN IS BLOWN; THE HORN OP SALVATION to all them that are waiting the Coming of the Lord. His Ambassador is gone: forth, and His Horn of Salvation is come,
