(THOU Maker of my vital frame, unveil thy face, pro- nounce thy name;

Shine to my sight, and let the ear which thou hast | formed, thy language hear: Divide, ye clouds, and let me see the Power that | gives me leave to be.

3 Lord, in thy sight, who every bosom viewest,
Cold in our warmest vows, and | vain our truest ;
Thoughts of a hurrying hour-our lips repeat them-
Our hearts forget them.

5 Who can resist thy gentle call, appealing
To every generous thought and | grateful feeling?
Oh, who can hear the accents of thy mercy,
And never love thee?

6 Kind Benefactor! plant within this bosom
The seeds of holiness; and let them blossom
In fragrance, and in beauty bright and vernal,
And spring eternal..

7 Then place them in those everlasting gardens,
Where angels walk, and | seraphs are the wardens;
Where every flower, brought safe through death's dark portal,
Becomes immortal!

Pride ruled my will: re- | member not past years!

O'er moor and fen, o'er crag and torrent, | till the night is gone,
And with the morn those angel | faces smile,
Which I have loved long | since, and lost awhile.

If o'er us shine
prosperous sun;

"Thy will be done"!
Though shrouded o'er
one comfort, one
