A full, o'erflowing horn of good
And peace, and hope, and joy embower'd In its sweet silent solitude.
Yes! now I feel the charm divine,
Blest by thy presence, and by thee
Love! one shall be our will, and one
Sacred to cheerful love—and praise
PRAISE AND GRATITUDE ON JEHOVAH'S DAY.
KING of the world! I worship thee;
Lord of the mind! the Sabbath 's thine :
A contrite heart, a bended knee,
To-day shall be my corn, my wine.
A choral song for sacrifice
Will mount as fire, and heavenward own
The moon comes up to wake the dew,
To kiss away the meadow's grief;
To let the cloud take anchor there;
And I was born to see and say
How beauty beams, without, within:
To my own soul, outliving sin.
Have come to me from thee, All-wise!—
THERE IS A TONGUE IN EVERY LEAF.
THERE is a tongue in every leaf,
A voice in every rill!
A voice that speaketh everywhere,
In flood and fire, through earth and air;
'Tis the great spirit, wide diffused
I see him in the blazing sun,
I see him, hear him, everywhere,
I feel him in the silent dews,
I feel him in the gentle showers,
The soft south wind, the breath of flowers,
And yet--ungrateful that I am!—
From all these things, whereof he said,
My sadness on the loveliest things
Yet he was patient, slow to wrath,
By selfish, pining discontent,
And still the same rich feast was spread
The clouds drew up, the shadows fled,
Of darkness and of doubt.
THE GENIUS OF DEATH.
WHAT is Death? "T is to be free!
All alike are humble there!
The mighty grave
Wraps lord and slave;
Nor pride, nor poverty dares come Within that refuge-house, the tomb!
Spirit with the drooping wing,
Sink, like waves upon the shore; Storms shall never rouse them more!
What's the grandeur of the earth
To the grandeur round thy throne!
To thy kingdom all have gone.
The wondrous band
Bards, heroes, sages, side by side,
Who darken'd nations when they died!
Earth has hosts; but thou canst show
Many a million for her one;
