Hymn 118

 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.
The 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.
