Text Appearing Before Image:
thy praise ; / i/^And trembling take upon a mortal tongu^ ^/r\That hallow *d name to harps of seraphs s\in^/iJYtrt here the brightest seraphs cOuld no more M .^iy/J/IThan hide their facs, tremble, and adore, l-cj ^^Worms, angtls, men, in every different sphere,Are equalr all, for all are nothing here.All nature faints beneath the mighty name, •*-/Which natures works, thro all her parts proclai;i>I feel that name my inmost thoughts control.And breathe an awful stillness through my soulAs by a charm, the waves of grief subside ;Impetuous passion stops htr headlong tide.At thy felt presence all emotions cease,And my hushd spirit finds a sudden peace ;Till evry worldly thought within me dies.And earths gay pageants vanish from my eyes :Till all my sense is lost in infinite.And one vast object fills my aching sight. But soon, alas! this holy calm is broke ;My soul submits to wear her wonted yoke ;With shackled pinions strives to soar in vain.And mingltis with the dross of eardi again.

Text Appearing After Image:
^28 Sequel to the English Reader* Part % But he, our gracious Master, kind as just,Knowing our frame, remembers man is dust.His spirit ever brooding oer our mind,Sc*es the first wish to better hopes inclind ;Marks the young dawn of evry virtuous aim.And fans the smoking flax into a flame.His ears are open to the softest cry.His grace descends to meet the lifted eye ;He reads the language of a silent tear,And sighs are incense from a heart sincere.Such are the vows, the sacrifice I give ;Accept the vow, and bid the suppliant live :From each terrestrial bondage set me free :StilJ evry wish that centres not in thee ;Bid my fond hopes, my vain disquiets cease,And point my path to everlasting peace. If the soft hand of winning pleasure leadsBy living waters, and thro flowry meads,When all is smiling, tranquil, and serene.And vernal beauty paints the flattring scene.Oh ! teach me to elude each latent snare.And whisper to my sliding htart—Beware !With caution let me hear the Syrens \ oice,
