IDOLATRY-THE GOLDE CALF WORSHIPPED. BY JOH BUSTAED. When God, from Sinai gave the Law, His name, and will, He then made known ; And by His first command did show- He is, and will be, God alone. o other God did Israel need, For He could to the utmost save ; As when from Egypt they were freed, And Pharoah found a watery grave : Ungrateful Israel disobey'd Their God, whose arm salvation gave : A god — a calf of gold, they made, And cried, " These are the gods which save. The wrath of God against them rose ; His hand was lifted to chastise ; But Moses pleads, — God mercy shows To some. — but, ah ! three thousand dies. ow — in our glorious gospel day, This sin prevails in heathen climes ; Heathens, to idols, homage pay, And perpetrate the basest crimes. Like Moses we, for them, should pray, That gospel light on them may shine Their idol gods be cast away ; — Their hearts renewed by grace divine. But wilt Thou, Lord, regard my prayer For them, if idols reign in me ? Or wilt thou not, in wrath declare, That I shall not thy glory see ?
