Luke xv.

7 And Jesus said, | 7 A | certain | man | 7 had | | two sons: | 77 | 7 And the younger of them | said to his father, 7 7 | Father, | give me the | portion of goods 7 that | falleth to me. | 7 7 | And he di- | vided unto them | 7 his | living. | 77 | 77 | I

7 And not 7 many | days after | 7 the younger | son 7 | gathered | all to- | gether, | 7 and | took his journey into a | far | country, | 7 and | there 7 wasted his | substance | 7 with | riotous | living. | 7 7 |

77 | 7 And | when he had | spent 7 | all, | 7 there a- 1 rose a mighty | famine | 7 in | that | land: |77| And he began to be in | want. 7 | 77 | 7 7 | 7 And he | went and joined himself | 7 to a | citizen | 7 of that | country: | 77 | 7 and | he | sent him | into his | fields | 7 to feed 7 swine. | 7 7 7 7 | And he would | fain have filled himself | 7 with the husks that the | swine did | eat: 7 | 77 | 7 but | no 7 | man | gave unto him. | 7 7 7 7 7 And when he came to himself, | 7 he | said, 7 | 7 7 | How many | hired | servants of my | father's have bread e- | nough | 7 and to spare, | 7 and |I| perish with | hunger! | 77 | 7 7 | I will a- | rise | 7 and go to my father, | 7 and will | say unto him, | 7 7 Father, | 7 I have | sinned against | heaven, | 7 and be- | fore thee, 77 and am no 7 | more worthy to be called thy son: |77| make me as servants. | 77 | 7 7 | 7 And | he ato his father.|77|77|

7 But when he was yet | 7 a great way off, | 7 his father | saw him, | 7 and | had com- | passion, | 7 and | ran, | 7 and | fell on his neck, | 7 and | kissed him. | 77 | 77 | 7 And the | son | said unto him, | 77 | Father, | 7 I have | sinned against | heaven, | 7 and in | thy 7 | sight, | 7 and am | no 7 | more | worthy to be | called thy | son. 7 | 77 | 7 7 | But the | father | said to I his servants, | 77 | Bring forth | 7the | best 7 ❘ robe, 7 | 1 7 and put it on him; | 77 | 7 and | put a | ring on his | hand, 7 | 7 and | shoes on his feet: 7|77|7 and | bring 7 | hither the | fatted | calf, | 7 and | kill it; | 77 | 7 and let us eat 7 | 7 and be merry: | 77 | 7 For | this my son 7 was and is a- | live a- |

PSALM CXXXIX.

O Lord, 7 thou hast searched me, | 7 and | known me. | 77 | 77 | 7 Thou | knowest my | down | sitting | 7 and mine | up 7 | rising, | 7 thou | under- | standest my thoughts | 7 a- | far off. 7 | 77 | 77 | Thou | compassest my | path, 7 | 7 and my down, 7 | and art ac- | quainted with | all my

lying | ways. | 7 7 For there is not a | word in my tongue, | 7 but | 1 lo, 7 | 07 | Lord | thon 7 | knowest it | alto- | gether. 7777 Thou hast be- | set me | 7 be- | hind and be- fore, 7 7 and I laid thine | hand upon me. | 77 | 77 | Such 7 | knowledge is | too | wonderful for | me :| 77 | it is high 7 | 7 I | cannot at- | tain unto it. | 77 77 | Whither shall I go 7 | 7 from thy | spirit? | 77 | 7 or whither shall I | flee from thy | presence? | 77 | 77 | If I as- | cend 7 | up into | heaven, |77| thou art | there: | 7 7 | if I make my | bed in | hell | 7 be| | hold, 7 | thou art | there. | 77 | 77 | If I take the | wings of the morning | 7 and | dwell in the

uttermost parts of the sea: 777 | Even | there | 7 shall | thy 7 | hand 7 | lead me, | 7 and thy | right 7 | hand shall | hold me. | 7 7 | 7 7 | If I | say, 7 | Surely the | darkness shall | cover me: | 7 7 | even the | night 7 | 7 shall be light about me: | 7 7 | Yea | 7 the | darkness | hideth not from | thee; | 7 7 | but the night | shineth as the day: | 7 7 |.7 the | darkness | and the | light 7 | 7 are | both a- | like to | thee. | 77 | 77 |

AGAINST PROCRASTINATION.

Young.

7 Be wise to- | day; 7 | 7 'tis | madness | 7 to de- | fer; 7|77|

Next | day 7 the | fatal | precedent | 7 will | plead, |77| Thus | on, 7 | 7 till | wisdom | 7 is | pushed | out of | life. 7 7 7 7 7 |

7 Pro- crastination | 7 is the | thief of time;7 | 77 | 77 | Year after year it | steals, | 7 till | all are | fled, 7| And to the mercies of a | moment | leaves 7 |

7 The vast con- | cerns | 7 of an e- | ternal | scene. 7 | 7777

If not so frequent, | would not ❘ this be | strange? 7 | 7 That 'tis so❘ frequent, this is stranger | still. | 771771

7 Of | Man's mi- | raculous mis- | takes, 7 | this 7 |

bears 7 |

7 The | palm, 7 7 that all men 7 are about to live, 7 |

7 For ever | 7 on the | brink of | being | born. | 77 |77| All | pay themselves the compliment to | think |

7 They | one day | shall not | drivel; | 7 and their | pride 7 | 7 On this re- | version | takes up | ready | praise, 7 | 7 At least their | own: | 7 their | future | selves | 7 ap-| plaud ; 7 | 77 | 77 |

How | excellent that 7 | life | 7 they | ne'er will lead! 7 | 77 |

Time lodged in their own | hands | 7 is | folly's | vails; | 77 |
