Who, to his promise ever true,
Display'd sweet virtue to my view ?.
And help'd her precepts to pursue ?

Jehovah.
And next, in Life's advancing days,
Who watch'd, and mark'd out all my ways,
And on my soul shed Wisdom's rays?

Jehovah. But, ah! my erring heart! who, still, Would draw thee from the paths of ill? Who shews thee how to curb thy will?

Jehovah. The Scriptures, rich in heavenly lore... Who gives thee power their Truths explore, And their great author to adore ?

Jehovah. There Wisdom, Power, and Love divine, In glorious effulgence do shine; And make me wish that I were thine,

Jehovah. And who for me a child became; Who too for me bare ev'ry blame, That I might glow with purest flame?

Jehovah. Who for lost Sinners Death endur'd, That of their sins they might be cur’d, And for them endless life procur'd ?

Jehovah. Exalted on thy throne on high, Look down with mercy's pitying eye, Nor shut thy ears against my cry,

Jchovah. Forgive me, Lord, my errors past! Seal my

sincere repentance fast, Thy word and truth for ever last,"

Jehovah, And should I ever cease to be A Lover of thy word and thee, Who hast so kindly loved me,

Jehovah ?
No; never more may I forbear
To praise thy kindest love and care,
And pour to thee my

Soul in pray'r,
X2

Jehovah !

[ocr errors]

When I am feeble, old, and gray,
May thy strong arin still prove my stay,
And soothe my aged pains away,

Jehovah !
And when I hang my weary head,
And thou in sickness mark'st my

bed,
Still on me sweet affection shed,

Jehovah !

O God! who liv'st above the skies,
When Death's cold hand has clos'd my eyes,
To thee, then, may my soul arise,

Jehovah !
