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 ?
Illume my understanding Lord,
And from my conscience guilt remove
Let my affections be restored
To Thee, Jehovah, God of love.
