[Tune - Chelsea.
How well thy blessed truths agree !
How wise and holy thy commands !
Thy promises, how firm they be!
How firm our hope and comfort stands.
Should all the forms that men devise,
Assault my faith with treach'rous art,
"I'd call them vanity and lies,
And bind the Gospel to my heart.

This Lesson is given out by three Monitors.--First Monitor, the Precept. Second Monitor, the Prayer. Third Monitor, the Promise. It may be considered one of the most useful Lessons introduced. Here is not only Jehovah's command, but the medium, prayer, by which we may derive assistance from him to fulfil that command, and the blessed promises of eternal life to such as obey. The pious and faithful Teacher will so easily discover the application of such a Lesson, that we think it useless to enter further into it.
