Let angry names no more
The christian world o'erspread ;
Let mutual love be found;
With mutual blessings crown'd.
Envy and strife, begone,
Aud only kindness known,
Resemble that above;
And every heart is love.
THE CHRISTIAN WARFARE.
thine eyes ;
AWAKE! my soul! lift up
Here, giant danger threat'ning stands,
See where rebellious passions rage,
Thou tread'st npon enchanted ground;
Come then, my soul ! now learn to wield
THE AGED CHRISTIAN'S PRAYER.
God of my childhood, and my youth !
The guide of all my days !
And seen thy wondrous ways.
Wilt thou forsake my hoary hairs,
And leave my fainting heart? Who shall sustain my sinking years
If GOD, my strength, depart ?
Let me thy pow'r and truth proclaim
To the surviving age,
Awaits my next remove :
Declare thy boundless love!
HOPE AND RESIGNATION.
On thee, o God! we still depend,
Should ills of ev'ry kind invade,
We 'll still refer ourselves to thee,
From earth we'll turn our longing eyes,
HOPE OF IMMORTALITY.
THOSE happy realms of joy and peace
Fain would my heart explore; Where grief and pain for ever cease,
And I shall sin no more.
No darkness there shall cloud the eyes,
No languor seize the frame; But ever active vigour rise
To feed the vital flame.
But ah ! a dreary vale between
Extends its awful gloom :
The horrors of the tomb.
But thy blest word, and will divine,
Do pierce beyond the grave ! They show that friend, and call him mine,
Whose arm is strong to save!
Here will I fix, for life is here ;
Light breaks amid the gloom; Trust in JEHOVAH's love, nor fear The horrors of the tomb.
