Dost thou for riches vainly sigh?
Or Honour's empty show? verilten during a s orihern Gale.
Or dost thou look with envious eye
Above the crowd below?
Sans rings bail, and frost, and snow! Can these, e'en all of them combin'd,
In all their varied forms,
Afford contentment to the mind,
For immortality design’d,
Midst life's tempestuous storms?
And sympathizing eye
That constitute our bliss below!
No greater boon can Heav'n bestow
On mortals doom'd to die !
And I will ask no more!
Oh let me, with thy Friendship blest,
Enjoy in thee that heav'nly rest
To which my wishes soar!
Found'ring sink, to rise no more ;
ON THE MOTTO
EARL OF KINGSTON'S ARMS.
Spes tutissima Cælis.
“The safest Hope is in Heaven.”
Whene'er my mind's opprest:
Oft have I found thy genial rays
Dispel the clouds of darkest days,
And set my soul at rest!
Bit ah! on Earth I dare not cast
llope's precious anchor, lest the blast Now, the Christian maxims prove; Of Time's rude winds should shake, Clothe the bare, the hungry feed,
And loose its hold, and in this gade Thus fulfil the law of Love !
Of snares and tempests me should fail, ALIQUIS.
And my fond schemes should break. TO MY SOUL.
The safest hope's in Heaven above !
Stable and firm 'twill ever prove,
For God will ne'er deceive;
'Tis in his Son that I confide,
I safe and joyful live!
