The Devotion of Nature.'
[From Moore's Sacred Melodies.]
Tho tarf shall be my fragrant sbriae ;
My temple, Lord, that arch of thine;
My censer's breath the moontain airs,
And silent thoughts my ooly prayers."
My choir shall be the moonlight waves,
When murm'ring homeward to their caves,
Or when the stillness of the sea,
E'en more than music, breathes of Thee!
I'll seek by day some glade opknowo, i ri
All light and silence, like thy Throne.
Aod the pale stars shall be at nigbt,
The only eyes that watch my rite,
Thy Heav'o; on which is bliss to look,
Shall be my pare and sbiniog book ;
Where I shall road in words of fame,
The glories of thy wondrous name.
I'll read thy'anger in the rack
That cloads awhile the day-beams' traok ;
Thy mercy in the azure boo
Of surdy brightness, breaking through!
There's nothing bright, above, below,
From flow'rs that bloom to stars that glow,
Batin its light my soul on see,
Some featore of tby Deity!
There's nothing dark, below, above,
Bat in its gloom I trace thy Loro,
And meekly wait tbat moment, en
Thy touch shall toro all bright again | ' : "! "13121
