'raise to thee, thou great Creator!
Praise be thine from ev'ry tongue:
oin, my soul, with ev'ry creature;
Join the universal song!
For ten thousand blessings giv'n;
For the richest gifts bestow'd;
Sound his praise through earth and
Sound Jehovah's praise aloud!
To a Child of Jive years old.

Which in Eden's garden grew;
lowers of Eve's embower'd dwell-
Are, my fair one, types of you.
lark, my Polly, how the roses
Emulate your damask cheek;
[ow the bud its sweets discloses,
Buds, your op'ning bloom be-
Lilies are, by plain direction,
Emblems of a double kind,
Emblems of your fair complexion,
Emblems of your fairer mind.

Blossom, fade, and die away;
Then pursue good sense and duty,
Evergreens, that ne'er decay.
To some Children listening to a Lark.
See the lark prunes his active wings,
Rises to heav'n, and soars, and sings;
His morning hymns, his mid-day lays
Are one continued song of praise.
He speaks his Maker, all he can.
And shames the silent tongue of man.
When the declining orb of light
Eeminds him of approaching night.
His warbling vespers swell his breast.
And, as he sings, he sinks to rest.
Shall birds instructive lessons teach.
And we be deaf to what they preach?
