Not illustrated. 1826 edition. Excerpt: ...may gather round, These may usher cloudless day, Those but waft thee on thy way. He who watcheth winds that blow, May too long neglect to sow; He who waits lest clouds should rain, Harvest never shall obtain. Signs and tokens false may prove, Trust thou in a Saviour's love, In his sacrifice for sin, And his Spirit's power within.

Then, every anxious care on Thee repos'd, Her image to the spirit seems reveal'd A beauteous garden, by Thy love inclos'd, A spring shut up, a living fountain seal'd. Lovely as Eden, ere by sin's deceit The tempter there a fatal entrance found; Pure as a chrystal fount in noontide's heat, Whose sunless depth by rocks is guarded round. Her's is that state of holier innocence Fall'n nature of itself can never know; Thy arm's inclosure is her living fence, Thy grace which made her pure must keep her so. THE CHURCH IN HER DESOLAIJON.
