“It is truly a most Christian exercise to extract a sentiment of piety from the works an. appearances of Nature. It has the authority of the sacred writers upon its side, and er Saviour Himself gives it the weight and the solemnity of His example. “Behold the 1 the field ; they toil not, neither do they spin, yet your Heavenly Father careth for them expatiates on the beauty of a single flower, and draws from it the delightful argument of con, in God.
He gives us to see that taste may be combined with piety, and that the same may be occupied with all that is serious in the contemplations of Religion, and be at the time alive to the charms and loveliness of Nature.”—Dr. CHALMERS.
