ET the wickedness of a finner be ever so great, God will reretarns to him by a fincere repentance. For in the same manner that those who have formerly led a virtuous life, shall, if they deviate into fin, forfeit the favour of the Almighty, and destroy their fouls, notwithstanding their former goodness: in like manner a wicked man, if he reforms his life and turns to God, will become acceptable to him and partake of his mercy, whereby his sonl will be redeemed from eternal damnation.

2. I don't attempt to palliate my guilt by excuses, much less do I deny it; but acknowledge it with forrow and contrition, never losing fight of it, but retaining always a severe sense of it in my mind.

6. To the Lord our God belong mercies, and forgivenesses, though we have rebelled against him : neither have we obeyed the voice of the Lord our God, to walk in his laws which he set before us.

Dan, ix. 9, 10. 7. O Lord, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, left thou bring me to nothing. Jer. X. 24. Pf. vi. D.

8. Repent ye; for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand. St Matt. iii. 2.

3. O Lord, in the fulness of thy mercy, overlook my tranfgressions : and from my unfeigned repentance, in which I implore thy allistance, biot my iniquities from the book wherein they stand recorded against me.

4. God is better pleased with a sincere repentance, than with the most poin pous oblations which could be made (according to the legal inftitutions for a broken heart) by a broken heart labouring under that dejection and grief which always accompany a fincere repentance. This is a facrifice which will never be rejected by the Almighty like the sacrifices offer'd by wicked men meerly in compliance with form.

5. You must feel.a real and deep regret for having offended God, and not think to appease him by external expressions of sorrow, such as the renting of garments, of which the scripture affords us many instances : for God's graciousness, mercy, tenderness for mankind, and nowness to punish, are high encouragements to finners to hope for pardon upon their return to God: he may likewise be said to repent him of the evil or punishment which he inflicts upon men, in withdrawing is as soon as they delift to offend.

6. So unbounded is the mercy of Almighty God that he is dispos’d to pardon us, tho' we have never so grievously offended him, and 'tho' we have, as it were, renounced our allegiance to the Divine Being, and declared open rebeliion against him, by notoriously violating his laws, yet fill he is ready to pardon us, and offers us the means of reconciliation.

7. O Lord. I beseech thee not to view my faults and imperfections with the severe eye of a judge, but with the indulgence of a merciful father, for I could expect nothing but deftruction shouldft chou proceed with me according to rigid juftice. 8 Repent of your sins, and endeavour to be reconciled to God before Christ's glorious kingdom begins, which is to

3. I will arise, and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have linned against Heaven, and before thee, and am no more worthy to be called thy fon. St Luke xv. 18, 19.

10. Enter not into judgment with thy servant, O Lord ; for in thy fight shall no man living be justified. Ps. cxliii. 2.

11. If we say that we have no fin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us : but if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. St John i. 8, 9.

Early beloved brethren, the Scripture moveth us in

fundry places to acknowledge and confess our manifold fins and wickedness: and that we should not dif semble, nor cloke them before the face of Almighty God

10 O Lord, do not too severely mark what I have done amiss ;-the word in the original Hebrew signifies, do not enter into judgment with me, or carry me before thy awful tribunal ;-for shouldft thou exact perfett righteousness, the most upright man cannot stand the trial; no man living can expect salvation for his own righteousness, the very best of men cannot expect to be saved by his good works, but mult depend upon thy mercy.

ri. This life being a state which can never attain to perfection, and the very best men being obnoxious to great failings, to say that we are entirely free from the dominion of sin, is altogether false and absurd, it is utterly inconsistent with the truth and fimplicity of our religion : but if we acknowledge our sins before God, and lincerely repent of them, his mercy being equal to his justice, he will pardon us upon our fulfilling those conditions, and will, for the time to come, preserve us from any rortal fin, by affording us the allittance of his holy spirit, which will confirm and establish us in every good work. Rom. xvi. 20.
