TRUE AND FALSE COMFORTS




O God, whose favorable eye
The sinĖsick soul revives;
Holy and heavínly is the joy
Thy shining presence gives.


Not such as hypocrites suppose,
Who with a graceless heart,
Taste not of thee, but drink a dose
Prepared by Satanís art.


Intoxicating joys are theirs,
Who while they boast their light,
And seem to soar above the stars,
Are plunging into night.


Lulled in a soft and fatal sleep,
They sin, and yet rejoice;
Were they indeed the Saviorís sheep,
Would they not hear his voice?


Be mine the comforts, that reclaim
The soul from Satanís powír;
That make me blush for what I am,
And hate my sin the more.


íTis joy enough, my All in All,
At thy dear feet to lie;
Thou wilt not let me lower fall,
And none can higher fly.


---Alternative verses---


This hypocrites have ne'er believ'd,
They judge with graceless hearts;
Swell'd with their pride, they are deceiv'd
By Satan's wily arts.


Unholy, selfish joys are theirs;
And while they boast their light,
And seem to soar above the stars,
They're plunging into night.


Lull'd in a soft and formal sleep.
They sin, and yet rejoice;
Were they indeed the Saviour's sheep,
They sure would bear his voice.
