GOD IS LOVE.
Then let us, Power Supreme! thy will adore,
GOD IS LOVE.
When the orb of morn enlightens
Hill and mountain, mead and dell;
And the seried clouds dispel;
Its fidelity to prove,.
Unto Him whose name is Love! When the vesper star is beaming
In the coronet of even; And lake and river gleaming
With the ruddy hues of heaven;
In the forest and the grove,
A MORNING SOLILOQUY.
When the stars appear in millions
In the portals of the west, Bespangling the pavilions
Where the blessed are at rest; When the milky way is glowing
In the cope of heaven aboveLet thy gratitude be flowing
Unto Him whose name is Love!
A MORNING SOLILOQUY. Soft slumbers now my eyes forsake,
My powers are all renewed; May my freed spirit, too, awake
With heavenly strength endued !
One lavished hour retrieve,
What treasures would they give ?
Were offered then in vain;
And where's the promised gain ?
I, dying, shall esteem ;
H. MORE. HEAVENLY INSPIRATION.
HEAVENLY INSPIRATION. THE prayers
I make will then be sweet indeed
THE SAME SUBJECT.
O Thou! who taught my
Teach me to know how weak I am,
ACQUAINTANCE WITH GOD. ACQUAINT thee, O mortal! acquaint thee with
God; And joy, like the sunshine, shall beam on thy
road, And peace, like the dew-drop, shall fall on thy
head, And sleep, like an angel, shall visit thy bed. Acquaint thee, O mortal! acquaint thee with
God, And he shall be with thee when fears are
abroad; Thy safeguard in danger that threatens thy path, Thy joy in the valley and shadow of death.
THERE is a heavenly liberty unsung
CHRIST THE WAY, &c.
Which monarchs cannot grant, nor all the power
CHRIST THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND
Thou art the Way, and he who sighs,
Amid this cheerless waste of woe, To find a pathway to the skies,
In thee the light of heaven shall know.
Shines on through earthly blight and bloom,
