The universal Frayer.
Father of all! in ev'ry age,
In ev'ry clime ador'd,
By saint, by savage and by sage,
Jehovah, Jove or Lord!
TIiou great first cause, least under-
Who all my sense confin'd.
To know but this, that thou art good.
And that myself am blind;
Yet gave me, in this dark estate,
To see the good from ill;
And binding nature fast in fate,
Left free the human will.
What conscience dictates to be done.
Or warns me not to do.
This teach me more than hell to shun,
That more than heav'n pursue.
What blessings thy free bounty
Let me not cast away, (gives,
For God is paid, when man receives:
T'enjoy is to obey.
Yet not to earth's contracted span
Tliy goodness let me bound.
Or think thee Lord alone of man ,
When thousand worlds are round.
Let not this weak, unknowing liand
Presume thy bolts to throw;
And deal damnation round the land.
On eacli I judge thy foe.
If I am right, thy grace impart
Still in tlie right to stay;
If I am wrong, Oh, teach my heart
To find that better wav.
Save me alike from foolisli
Or impious discontent.
At aught thy wisdom has denied,
Or aught thy goodness lent.
Teach me to feel another's woe,
To hide the fault I see;
That mercy I to others show.
That mercy show to me.
Mean , though I am, not wholly so.
Since quicken'd by thy breath;
0, lead me, wheresoe'er I go.
Through this day's life or deatli!
This day be bread and peace my
All else beneath the sun : (lot,
Thou knowst if best bestow'd or
And let thy will be done, (not,
