SACRED AND MORAL.
1. All Address to the Deity. Thomson. And ye five other wand'ring fires that more
In mystic dance, not without song, resound LITIER of light and life! Thou soon
His praise, who out of darkness call'd up light SUPREME!
Air, and ye elements, the eldest birth O teach me what is good. Tcach me THYSELF!
lof Nature's womb, that in quaternion run Save me from folly, vanity, and vice,
Perpetual circle, multiform ; and mix From every low pursuit ! and feed my soul
And nourish all things; let your ceaseless change With knowledge, conscious peace, and virtuel ina ng
Vary to our great Maker still new praise. Sacred, substantial, never-fading bliss! [pure;
Ye Mists and Exhalations that now rise
From hill or streaming lake, dusky or grey, $ 2. Adam and Eve, in a Morning Hymn, call
| Till the sun paint your Aeccy skirts with gold, upor all the Parts of the Creation to join with
In honor to the world's great Author rise! them in crtolling their common Maker.
Whether to deck with clouds th' uncolor'd sky, Milton.
Or wet the thirsty carth with falling showers, These are Thy glorious works, Parent of good, Rising or falling'still advance his praise. Almighty, thine this universal fraine,
His praise,yeWinds, that from four quarters blow, Thus wondrous fair; thyself howwondrous then! Breathe soft or loud; and wave your tops, yePines, l'aspeakable, who sitt'st above these Heavens With every plant in sign of worship ware. To us invisible, or dimly seen
Fountains, and ye that warble as ye flow In these thy lowest works; yet these declare Melodious murmurs, warbling tune his praise. The goodness beyond thought, and pow'r divine. Join voices, all ve living Souls ; ve Birds, Speak ye who bést can tell, yo sons of light, That singing up to Heaven's gate ascend, Angels; for ye behold him, and with songs Bear on your wings and in your notes his praisc. And coral syinphonies, day without night, Ye that in waters glide, and he that walk Circle his throne rejoicing; ye in Heaven,
The earth, and stately tread, or lowly creep; On Farth, join all ye creatures to extol
| Witness if I be silent, morn or even,
Disperse it, as now light dispels the dark.
$ 3. On the Deity. Mrs. Barbaulu. And when high noon hast gain'd, and when thou I READ God's awful name emblazon'd high, fallist.
With golden letters on th' illumin'd sky; Moon, that now mcet'st the orient sun, now fly'st Nor less the mystic characters I see, With the lix'd stars, fix'd in their orb that flies, Wrought in cach Power, inscribd on ev'ry tree;
In ev'ry leaf that trembles to the breeze Ten thousand thousand precious gifts
Ivy daily ihranks emplov,
Nor is the least a cheerful leart,
That tistes chose gifts with joy.
Thy goodness I'll pursue;
Divide thy works no more',
Thy mexey strall adore. Then when the last, the closing hour draw's Through all eternity to The nigh,
| A joyful song I'll ririse, And carth recedes before my swimming cye; For Oi éternity's too shore When treinbling on the doubtful edge of fate
To ulter all thy praise,
$5 Hymn on Providence. Addison: Teach me to fix my ardent hopes on high, And, having lived to the, in thee to die.
The Lord iny pasture shall prepare,
His presence shall iny wants supply, $ 4. llymn on Gratitude. Addison. And guard me with a watchful eye;
My noon-day walks he shall atteid,
And all my midnight hours defend.
When in the sultry ylcbe I faint,
Or on the thirsty mountains pant;
My weary wand'ring steps he lead;
Where peaceful rivers, soft and slow,
Amid the verdant landskip flow. But thou canst read it there.
Tho' in the paths of Death I tread, Thy providence my life sustain'd,
With gloomy horrors eversprcail, And all my wants redress'd,
Vy stedfast heart shall fear no ill, When in the silent womb I lay,
For thon, O Lord, art with me still; And hung upon the breast.
Thy friendly crook shall give me aid, To all ny weak complaints and cries
And guide me through the dreadful shade. Tliy mercy lent an ear,
Tho' in a bare and rugged var, Ere yet iy feeble thoughts had learnt
Through devious lonely wilds I stray, 'To forin themselves in pray'r.
Thy bounty shall my pains beguile: : Unnumber'd comforts to my soul
The barren wilderness shall sinile, Thy tender care bestow'd, '
With sudden greens and herbage crown'd; Before my infant heart conceiv'd
And streains shall murmur all around.
186. Another Hymn, from the beginning of the With heedless steps I ran,
gth Psalm. Addison. Thine arm unseen convey'd me safe, And led me up to man.
The spacious firmament on high,
With all the blue ethercal sky, Through hidden dangers, toils, and deaths,
And spangled Heavens, a shining frame, It gently clear'd inv way,
Their great Original proclaima And through the pleasin, snares of vico,
| Th' unwearicd sun, from day to day, More to be fear'd than they.
Does his Creator's pow'r display,
The work of an Almighty hand.
Soon as the evening shades prevail, Reviv'd my soul with grace.
The moon takes up the wondrous tale, Thy bounteous hand with worldly bliss And nightly to the list'ning earth, llas made my cup run o'er,
Repeats the story of her birth : And in a kind and faithful friend .
Whilst all the siars that round her burn, Has doubled all my store,
And all the planets in their turn,
