Compassion and Forgiveness.
1.
3.
I hear the voice of woe;
A brother mortal mourns;
My eyes with tears, for tears o'er-
ilow;
My heart, his sighs returns.
2.
I hear the thirsty cry;
The famish'd beg for bread:
0, let my spring its streams supply;
My hand its bounty shed!
And shall not wrath relent;
Touch'd by that humble strain
My brother crying, "I repent
Nor will offend again?"
4.
How else, on sprightly wing.
Can Hope bear high my pray
Up to thy throne, my God, my King
To plead for pardon there?
Scott.
EpitapJi on a poor and virtuous Man.
1.
Stop, reader, here, and deign to look
On one without a name;
Ne'er enter'd in the ample book
Of fortune, or of fame.
2.
Studious of peace, he hated strife;
Meek virtues fill'd his breast:
His coat of arms, "a spotless life;
"An honest heart," his crest.
3.
Quarter'd therewith was innocence
And thus his motto ran:
"A conscience void of all ofi'eno
Before both God and man.'
4.
In the great day of wrath, tho' pride
Now scorns his pedigree.
Thousands shall wish they'd been
allied
To this great family.
The Advantages of early Religion.
1.
Happy the child, whose tender years,
Keceive instruction well;
Who hates the sinner's path; and
fears
The road that leads to hell.
2.
When we devote our youth to God
'T is pleasing in his eyes:
A flow'r, when ofFer'd in the bud,
Is no vain sacrifice.
