“Thou shalt see greater abominations.” Ezek. 8. 6

J. Berridge              S.M.

1
That image-chamber foul
Which met Ezekiel’s eye,
Points out the breast of every soul,
Where lurking idols lie.

2
Yet ask for further light,
And turn to see thy woe,
And God will clear thy misty sight,
And deeper visions show.

3
As we the light can bear
To break upon our eyes,
Still deeper idols shall appear,
And more will after rise.

4
Thus pride is broken down,
And humbled in the dust,
We view our vileness, and must own
The Lord is all our trust.

5
May Jesus Christ disclose
The plagues within my heart;
And as my soul more humbled grows,
A brighter faith impart.
