AN APPEAL

TO

MATTER OF FACT AND COMMON SENSE

OR,

A RATIONAL DEMONSTRATION

OF

MAN'S CORRUPT AND LOST ESTATE.

Ye pompous sons of Reason, idolized
And vilified at once; of Reason dead,
Then deified, as Monarchs were of old;
Wrong not the Christian ; think not Reason yours ;
'Tis Reason our great Master holds so dear ;
'Tis Reason's injured rights his wrath resents :
'Tis Reason's vo-ce obey'd his glories crown;
To give lost reason life he pour'd his own :
Believe, and show the reason of a man ;
Believe, and taste the pleasure of a God;
Through Reason's wounds alone thy faith can die.

YOUNG The Son of Man is come, to seek and to save that which was lost.

Luke xix. 10.
