CHRISTIAN's THANKSGIVING

On a Lord's-day Evening.

LINES
ON A DEPARTED SAINT.

Yonder, in the clay-cold bed,
Rests a Pilgrim's weary head :
But the spirit is above,
Dwelling with the God of love.
Staff and sandals laid aside,
When he came to Jordau's tide,
On the bank he trembling stood,
As he view'd the parting flood;
But a refuge found in pray'r,
From his chilling doubts and fear.
For a guardian angel came,
Sent in God bis Father's name,
To conduct him to that rest,
Which in Heaven awaits the blest.
Cheer'd, he ventur'd through the floud,
Trusting in a faithful God.
Soon he reach'd the happy shore,
And we saw his face no more.
But we thought we heard him sing,
« Glory” to our heavenly King ;
Whilst the raptures of his lyre,
Filling Hope with strong desire,
As she list’ning caught the sound,
Standing on this lower ground,
Made her long to soar away,
To the realms of perfect day.
Wallingford.

I. T. D.

Thanks to thy name, thou God of grace,
Thou matchless Lover of our race,
For every boon thy love imparts,
To renovate and cheer our hearts.
Thanks to thy name for days of rest,
For Sabbath-days, of days the best ;
And every mean thy love employs
To heighten and exalt our joys.
Thanks to thy name for thy bless'd word,
That transcript of my dearest Lord,
In which I see, as in a glass,
The beamings of a Saviour's face.
Thanks for the Spirit, who indites,
And seals the lessons which he writes :
Great God! bis influence impart,
To seal those lessons on my heart.
Thanks for thy well-beloved Son,
Who left his bigh and holy throne,
On earth to sojourn, bleed, and die,
To bring a wretched outcast nigh.
Thanks for thy Sabbaths, dearest Lord,
Which such delight and joy afford :
Oh, may they prove, while here I roam,
The pledge of brighter joys to come!
Then in that world of perfect bliss,
Where pleasure in perfection is,
I shall behold thee face to face,
And sing the triumphs of thy grace.
London.

INVOCATION
TO THE CHIEF SHEPHERD.

THE

[ocr errors]

COME Jesus, and visit thy fold,
Where thy sheep are united in love:

HEATHEN COMMISERATED.
Our Shepherd we long to behold;
Dear Jesus, descend from above.

Bear me, imagination's wing,
Thy presence, thou Shepherd divine, And land me on some distant shore,
Will comfort the sorrowful breast; Where tuneful warblers never sing,
On thy bosom we wish to recline ; But serpents hiss, and lions roar.
'Tis there that the weary find rest. There let my weeping eyes survey
Thy presence illumines the night, The human form by sin debas'd;
And frightens the lion away;

Where Superstition holds her sway,
Who prowls round thy fold with delight, And Ignorance is never chas’d.
And is eager to make us his prey.

Then waft me back to Britain's shore,
Come then, with thy fulness of grace, Where gospel-light salutes my eyes :
And feed and defend us while here; There I'll recount my mercies o'er,
And make this the place of thy rest, And feel my syınpathies arise.
That thy fock may have nothing to fear. Impress’d with such a gloomy scene,
We pait our dear Shepherd to see,
Whose mercy to us was so great;

My prayers shall wake the morning light;

Shall fill the hours that intervere,
How can we be happy from thee?

And break the solitude of night.
Thy love we can never forget.
To thee do we lift up our voice,

My head, my heart, my hand shall join
Thou Shepherd of Israel divine,

To send the light of life abroad;

And aid their efforts who combine
Enable thy fold to rejoice,
And say to each soul, “ I am thine." To spread “the knowledge of the Lord."
Wallingford.
