'T is easy work, if we begin
To fear the Lord betimes;
While sinners, who grow old in sin,
Are harden'd in their crimes.
'T will save us from a thousand
To mind religion young;
• It will preserve our following years;
And make our virtue strong.
1. 3
To thee, Almighty God! to thee
Our childhood we resign;
'T will please us to look back, and
That our whole lives were thine.
Let the sweet work of pray'r and
Employ our youngest breath;
Thus we're prepar'd for longer days;
Or fit for early death.
To a young Woman , mth a Watch.
Wliile this gay toy attracts thy
Thy reason let it warn;
.A.nd seize, ray dear, that rapid time,
Tliat never must return.
[f idly lost, no art or care
The blessing can restore;
And Heav'n requires a strict ac-
For ev'ry mispent hour.
Short is our longest day of life,
And soon its prospects end;
Yet, on that day's uncertain date,
Eternal years depend.
But equal to our being's aim.
The space to virtue giv'n;
And ev'ry minute, well improv'd,
Secures an age in Heav'n. —
Mrs. Carter.
Heavenly Wisdom.
low happy is the man who hears
Instruction's warning voice;
^nd who celestial wisdom makes
His early, only choice.
For she hag treasures, greater far
Than East or West unfold;
And her rewards more precious are
Than all their stores of gold.
