only the glory of God, &c. I appeal to the heart. O ! Self is a subtle principle. In private a man will blush at his own hypocrisy ; and Satan, helping him, may make him a self- deceiver. But every motive will then start up ! How many actions now under the garb of humility, will then be seen to have originated in pride ! How many blazoned deeds from self- love ! How many actions, which seemed under the motive of zeal to God, like those of Jehu [to have been prompted by interest] ! 3. Secrets of inattention. Those parts of our conduct which are secret by inattention — a large portion of our ac- tions are thought to be venial, trifling, &c. " For every idle word which men shall speak they shall give account in the day of judgment." Locke and the card-players. * # * Our conduct is also marked by that stranger. * * * O ! act under these impressions ! 4. Secrets of influence. We are members one of anoth- er. We are always, when in society, doing either good or harm. Little do we know how many are they whose mor- als we have poisoned ! [or on whom we have in some way exerted an unhallowed influence]. In that day the author of blasphemous works will answer for all the evil he has done. At the same time, I know many secrets of prayer will then be found — many tears, &c. — but I believe the term secrets is here used in a forensic sense. ow this subject requires deep self-examination. O ! what secrets will this night conceal ! Perhaps some of you will commit sin to-night : " But remember, for all these things God will bring you into judgment." What will be the effects of this judgment ? 1. The shame of exposure ; and remember, sin is the subject of shame.
