tU 0 glorious refurredion day! The mountains fkip, the hills do plays The iflands too are fled away, And waters back are driven. i8 Hail nations, hail! the great I Am Hath plac'd his kingdom now in man- The virgins, followers of the Lamb, Have found their feac in heaven. Second Appearing. CHRIST'S fecond appearing was in Mother Ann. C Whofe foul cry'd to God for falvation for man;,X And God heard her cries for the good- of the whole, And fent the true comforter into her foul Zion, 0 break forth into finging! Her gofpel is ringing -'tis true.

Then our Father Jofeph, whom God did prepare By faith and obedience, became the true heir, Our blefs'd Mother's mantle (lid cover his foul, And a faithful Elder he was to the whole: Zion i daily poffefling Our dear Father's bleffing-'tis true.

In regeneration their fouls fwiftly run, And true church relation by. them was begun; They planted the church-and eftablifli'd its laws, Devoted their lives in fupport of its caufe; Zion in regeneration, Does find church relation-'tis true. Two pillars in Zion they truly remain'd, And by faithful labour church order they gain'd, And then Father's work on the earth was all done, Whofe foul now in glory does fhiine like the fAun. Zion his fuffering regretted, And til feRd ijdebted-'ti trqe. Gs 2
