IF I SHOULD DIE TO-NIGHT.

Then of this also I am sure If I should die to-night,

That Thou didst all these pains endure

To abolish Sinn not Wheat.
My friends would look upon my quiet face
Before they laid it in its resting place,

Creatures are good, and have their place And deem that death had left it almost fair;

Sinn onely, wch did all deface

Thou drivest from his seat. And, laying snow-white flowers against my

hair, Would smooth it down with tearful tenderness, At the rate of an Incarnation

I could beleeve an Impanation And fold my hands with lingering caress.

If Thou hadst dyde for Bread. Poor hands, so empty and so cold to-night!

But that wch made my soule to dye

My flesh, and fleshy villany If I should die to-night,

That allso made Thee dead. My friends would call to mind, with loving thought,

That fflesh is there, mine eyes deny: Some kindly deed the icy hand had wrought; And what shold flesh but flesh discry, Some gentle word the frozen lips had said;

The noblest sence of five? Errands on which the willing feet had sped : If glorious bodies pass the sight The memory of my selfishness and pride, Shall they be food and strength, and might, My hasty words, would all be put aside.

Euen there, where they deceiue ? And so I should be loved and mourned to-night.

Into my soule this cannot pass If I should die to-night,

Fflesh (though exalted) keeps his grass Even hearts estranged would turn once more

And cannot turn to soule. to me,

Bodyes and Minds are different spheres Recalling other days remorsefully.

Nor can they change their bounds and meres The eyes that chill me with averted glance

But keep a constant Pole.
Would look upon me as of yore, perchance,
And soften, in the old, familiar way.

This gift of all gifts is the best, For who could war with dumb, unconscious Thy flesh the least yt I request : clay?

Thou took'st that pledg from mee :

Give me not that I had before, So I might rest, forgiven of all, to-night.

Or give me that, so I have more, Oh, friends, I pray to-night,

My God, give mee all Thee.

GEO. HERBERT. Keep not your kisses for my dead, cold brow. The way is lonely, let me feel them now. Think gently of me; I am travel-worn : My faltering feet are pierced with many a thorn. Forgive, oh, hearts estranged, forgive, I plead! CHILDREN'S EVENING HYMN. When dreamless rest is mine I shall not need

The little birds now seek their rest; The tenderness for which I long to-night.

The baby sleeps on mother's breast; Christian Union.

Thou givest all Thy children rest,

God of the weary. The sailor prayeth on the sea;

The little ones at mother's knee;
[Unpublished Poem.)

Now comes the penitent to Thee,
THE HOLY COMMUNION.

God of the weary. O GRATIOUS Lord, how shall I know

The orphan puts away his fears; Whether in these gifts Thou bee so

The troubled hopes for happier years; As thou art every-where;

Thou driest all the mourner's tears, Or rather so, as Thou alone

God of the weary. Tak’st all ye Lodging, leaving none Ffor Thy poore creature there.

Thou sendest rest to tired feet,

To little toilers slumbers sweet, Ffirst I am sure, whether bread stay

To aching hearts repose complete, Or whether Bread doe fly away

God of the weary. Concerneth Bread not mee. But yt both Thou, and all Thy traine

In grief, perplexity, or pain,
Bee there, to Thy truth and my gaine

None ever come to Thee in vain;
Concerneth mee and Thee.

Thou makest life a joy again,

God of the weary. And if in comming to Thy foes Thou dost conse first to them, yt showes

We sleep that we may wake renewed, The hast of Thy good will.

To serve Thee as Thy children should, Or if that Thou two stations makest,

With love, and zeal, and gratitude, In Bread and mee, the way Thou takest

God of the weary. Is more, but for mee still.

Good Words.

B. S.
