We are assembled this night, my brethren, the subjects of the law; the students of the gospel; the expectants of Christ's second appearance. 66 See then that

ye resist not him that speaketh from heaven.' · Ye are happily set free from the law of ceremonies ; happily fubjected to the law of morality; and “not without law unto Christ." 66 Stand fast therefore in that liberty wherewith Christ hath made you free.Enjoy and improve what you have ; affect not more than a wise Providence permits. Look forward to that day when you shall join an innumerable company of angels, yourselves like the angels of God in heaven; when you shall associate with the spirits of just men made perfect, yourselves perfect as they are ; when

you fhall add your voices to the celestial choir, in singing " the song of Moses and the Lamb;" when you

fhall see the face of God without dying, and hear his voice without quaking for fear.

66 Now unto Him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in. his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."
