By sorrows, afflictions, and troubles beset,

Temptations and trials severe,
The language of patience and faith will be yet,

“ O Lord, It is good to be here."
Gethsemane's garden, and Calvary's bill,

Believers hold sacred and dear;
And when the Lord's glory his temple doth fill,

We feel, “ It is good to be here."
But what saith the soul tbat hath entered her 'rost,

When God wipes away ev'ry teår;
Wbere fulness of joy is for ever possess'd .
“ 'Tis better than all to be here!”

J. S. HARVEY.

LINES, To be sung by the Children, at a Sunday-school Anniversary.

He comes, the Lord Jehovah,

The Saviour whom we seek :
And soon bis temple over,

This sudden ligbt shall break.
Then, let bis priests be holy,

His saints rejoice and sing,
All wait in posture lowly,

The advent of their King.
